Electronic Voting Opens for Board Positions

The voting process for three Board positions has begun. This year voting happens online. Full and provisional registrants in good standing are able to vote for up to three candidates, from a pool of five nominated occupational therapists.

The Board election will be open until 4:00 p.m. November 30, 2020. Instructions have been emailed to registrants with a link to the voting portal, the access code and password. Once you’ve logged in, you can review information about the election, read candidate bios and follow ballot instructions. Results for the election will be published on the College website in early December.

The Board is the College’s governing body and receives its authority from the Health Professions Act. The Board is responsible for the leadership, direction and strategy of the College. Building a great Board is more than simply filling a seat. It’s about finding occupational therapists with the experience and perspectives that support a Board, which works together and is clearly focused on its mandate. Visit our website to review the obligations of Board members.

This is the first time the College is holding elections online. An external firm electronically delivers a ballot to each practising Registrant eligible to vote. The electronic ballot method ensures the vote is confidential, and that each Registrant can only vote one time. If you have any questions, please email us at: info@cotbc.org

Thank you for taking the time to vote. Registrant participation on the Board is the healthy reflection of the profession’s commitment to protect the public.
