Message from Sharon Eadie, Executive Director:

December 2017

Since my last message in early October, COTM held its AGM event with the Manitoba Society of Occupational Therapists.  Unfortunately COTM did not achieve quorum so we were unable to convene a formal meeting.  We used the time to share information about COTM, the past year’s finances and the current year’s budget and plans.  A web-based version of the presentation can be found at

As a further follow-up, an online survey was used to conduct the one required vote which is the appointment of the auditor.  The motion was approved by the majority of members who participated in this process.  During the coming year, COTM will be consulting other Manitoba regulators to work towards holding a virtual AGM in 2018.  We are excited about the possibility of a greater number of rural and remote participants beyond the few who join now.

As the year draws to a close, we once again want to acknowledge the work done by MSOT to act as the voice of Manitoba occupational therapists. We are grateful to work in parallel with such a dynamic group of volunteers.

Last year at this time of year, I was touched by the interviews of Winnipeg Harvest volunteers during CBC Radio’s Harvesting Hope fundraiser.  The stories of individuals needing some employment support inspired me to create a COTM Office Assistant position that would provide office experience and some additional revenue for a person.  We welcome Stuart to the office; he will work 6 hours a week to assist the three office-based COTM staff with a whole variety of tasks. Perhaps you will have the chance to meet him the next time you are in the office.
In closing, we wish you and yours all the best during this holiday season!

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