The history of occupational therapy in Canada is filled with fascinating stories of courage, insight and determination. Understanding how occupational therapy has developed across the country will help us to continually explore our professional identity, provide insight on how our profession is evolving, and leave a richer historical record for future generations.

With the common goal of bringing our history to life, members of the OT History Interest Group, at the University of Toronto, and the CAOT Archives committee have come together to profile these stories.


Please help us ensure no one is left out by emailing us your suggestions of who should be included on this list.
