A Message from COTM Executive Director
March in Manitoba is a month when change is anticipated - the weather inspires the hope that comes with the pending spring.
COTM will be contributing to a fair degree of change itself these next few months.
We will be launching a new website very soon which will provide for the much desired ability for members to more easily access their COTM Member Portal. The new functionality also provides for the COTM Online Directory which will provide the public with information about who is registered to practise OT in Manitoba.
COTM is also engaged in significant new initiatives with its national counterparts in a number of areas. One of the most notable is the creation of an Exam Oversight Committee with the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists. At the provincial level we are working with the MB Alliance of Health Regulatory Colleges on such things as a response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action. And at an even more local level COTM is developing policies and procedures – with the assistance and participation of the other tenants of 120 Maryland – to implement The Accessibility for Manitobans Act Customer Standard Regulation by the November 2018 deadline.
