IEOT Portal

For occupational therapists planning to work in Canada, the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT) has made it easier for you as they have officially launched last October 2009 the Internationally Educated Occupational Therapists (IEOT) Web Portal.

About the IEOT Portal

In Canada, occupational therapy is a regulated health profession. Occupational therapists work in highly diverse settings, including hospitals, rehabilitation centres, private clinics, nursing homes, in the work place, schools, and in community-based programs.

The IEOT Portal is a joint initiative of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT), Association of Canadian Occupational Therapy Regulatory Organizations (ACOTRO) and Association of Canadian Occupational Therapy University Programs (ACOTUP). The IEOT Portal is funded by the Government of Canada’s Foreign Credential Recognition Program.

This portal was created to provide internationally educated occupational therapists with a gateway to information about the practice of occupational therapy in Canada. Primarily, it focuses on registration requirements – which are determined by the province or territory in which a person wants to work. It also leads visitors to valuable information about immigration, education, jobs, and even first-hand accounts of what it is like to work in Canada.

For many internationally educated occupational therapists, Canada is a desirable place to live and work. Browse this portal and see for yourself the many benefits of working in Canada.
