A Message from COTM Executive Director

Hello All,

As I write this the first COVID-19 vaccinations have taken place in Manitoba today.  What a milestone in this pandemic journey – and finally one that is full of hope and optimism.

Nevertheless, we know that the coming months will continue to pose challenges for all; and given that, please reach out to COTM if you feel that we can assist you through providing information that will support you in your practice.  COVID-19 specific information can be found at https://cotm.ca/coronavirus-covid-19-update

The COTM Council would like to extend thanks to all COTM members for their participation in the pandemic response whether it is through redeployment, working extra hours, modifying your practice or anything that has facilitated the collective effort.

The pandemic response has further expanded this week with the Ministerial Order that enables occupational therapists taking on work as vaccinators. There are key features that must be in place for this to be acceptable so please read the Order with care. And be in touch with me should you have specific questions. https://web2.gov.mb.ca/laws/orders/_pdf-order.php?ord=2020-12-09

Lastly, I want to wish you and yours the very best of the holiday season, even if it will be so very different.

Stay well,

Sharon Eadie, O.T. Reg. (MB)
COTM Executive Director
