COTF launches new logo
COTF is proud to present its new logo — clearly reflecting our mission to advance the understanding of occupation and its enablement by funding scholarship to build capacity and research to build knowledge.
Evidence to Action Campaign is on its way
The campaign to fund the development and sharing of evidence in occupational therapy was launched at a reception in March 2002. COTF thanks the following individuals for their leadership and financial support. As of April 30, $13,265 has been donated or pledged.
Members of the occupational therapy community were invited to contribute to the campaign through a special mail appeal in May. Individuals responding to this appeal will be recognized in a future issue of OT Now.
New Brunswick Association creates provincial fund
In April, the NBAOT launched a $5,000 fundraising campaign to create a provincial research, scholarship and education fund. COTF will match donations to the fund, dollar for dollar, until it reaches $10,000.

A wonderful surprise!
Josiane is enrolled in the part-time Master’s studies at Dalhousie University and works with infants and children as an evaluator and therapist. She has developed a special interest in children and families living with autism and other pervasive developmental disorders. Her project focuses on the impact of autism on mothers’ occupations, health and well being. Implications for practice include the role of occupational therapy in prevention with families as clients.
That’s great news!
Beata works in the Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Clinic at Thames Valley Children’s Centre in London and is enrolled in part-time studies at the University of Western Ontario. She is interested in how AAC intervention assists children in becoming competent communicators. Her study will examine competence of children using AAC devices and strategies for functional written communication with reference to physical access, independence and technology. Outcomes of this study will increase understanding of clients’ and caregivers’ perceptions and guide clinicians in making recommendations.
