If you are concerned that an occupational therapist failed to provide proper care, we’d like to know.
Applicants must meet the requirements to become registered occupational therapists and practice in BC.
The College helps BC’s occupational therapists to provide safe, competent, ethical, and effective care.
Protecting the Public
The College of Occupational Therapists of British Columbia protects the public and upholds public confidence by registering only those OTs that meet our established requirements for entry into the profession, setting standards for practice and ethical conduct, fairly investigating complaints raised about registrants’ practice, and monitoring and supporting continued competence throughout a registrant’s practice career.
How Our Complaints Inquiry Process Works
View the Public Notifications section of this website for actions taken to ensure safe, competent practice.
Practice Supports for OTs
Access learning modules, recorded webinars, practice cases, and more, or contact the College to ask a practice question.
BC’s registered occupational therapists meet or exceed COTBC standards for safe, ethical and effective care.
