  • For the reasons of better economic prospects, social opportunity or pure adventure, many occupational therapists seek employment in other countries. Unfortunately not all are successful. As a profession that enables engagement in occupations of necessity or choice, we need to address issues that impede the successful workforce integration of internationally educated occupational therapists (IEOTs). This presentation outlines the initiatives of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists to recognize barriers and implement initiatives to assist IEOTs with working in Canada. Projects funded by the Government of Canada’s Foreign Credential Recognition Program
  • The project will build upon previous work undertaken for internationally educated occupational therapists (IEOTs) by both organizations in order to:Develop a curriculum and supports for IEOTs that can be delivered by occupational therapy programs across Canada and to offshore IEOTs who wish to work in Canada.Assist individual IEOTs to determine what resources they need in order to transition successfully into practice in Canada.Provide profession specific language resources to IEOTs who were not educated in one of the official languages.Nurture culturally appropriate work readiness skills.Provide examination practice.Encourage the development of mentoring relationships.Provide supervised practicum experience.Provide career guidance for those IEOTs who are unable to transition into Canadian occupational therapy practice.The OTepp curriculum and other resources will be made available in both official languages. We are hoping to implement this curriculum at the University of British Columbia, University of Alberta, University of Manitoba and University of Ottawa.
