Open Forum Summary – October 24

Council welcomed Hélène Sabourin, CAOT Chief Executive Officer and Robin Telasky, SAOT Executive Director who were able to join its Open Forum on October 24, 2020. Participants asked great questions about:

  • CAOT and SAOT advocacy efforts – Helene and Robin reported on the tools, resources and public awareness campaigns their respective organizations have developed, as well as national and regional advocacy efforts with large employers, government and insurers.
  • CORECOM – has an October update which includes an invitation to participate in consultation sessions on the Core Competencies being developed.
  • Percentage of Public Members on Council – Bill 30 requires an increase from the current 25% to a total of 50% of voting Council members to be Public Members appointed by government. Many jurisdictions have moved in this direction, and there was discussion on how this will impact the culture and workload of Council.
  • Mandatory training on prevention of sexual abuse and sexual misconduct – this training must be completed by all registrants by the end of February 2021. This will be a condition for practice permit renewal. The modules are free to view and can be found here:
  • ACOT’s Strategic Plan – with all the changes that have occurred during 2020, Council will relook at its Strategic Plan in November to determine if it needs to be updated with new information.
  • Cross-provincial licensing – the Association of Canadian Occupational Therapy Regulatory Organizations (ACOTRO) is preparing a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to address cross-jurisdictional practice and will review this in November 2020 to determine next steps to operationalize the MOU.

Thank you to all those who participated in Council’s Open Forum!
