How do I find an occupational therapist?
When you need to FIND an OT, CAOT provides a convenient directory of occupational therapists that helps you connect with the occupational therapy services that are right for you. You can search by province or by area of practice.
- Occupational therapy services may be assigned to you as part of a hospital stay or a rehabilitation treatment plan.
- Services may be accessed in your home or as an outpatient. Contact your local hospital or community health care centre for information.
- Ask your family doctor or other health care professional (e.g. physiotherapist, nurse, chiropractor) for a referral to occupational therapy.
- The services of an occupational therapist may be covered under your extended health insurance at work – ie Blue Cross, The Cooperators, SunLife. Call them and find out.
