COTBC Welcomes New Deputy Registrar

We are pleased to announce Megan Shields will join the College as our new deputy registrar. Megan will join the College team on October 31, 2022.

Megan moved from rural Ontario to British Columbia to complete her Occupational Therapy Master’s degree in 2012. Since then, she has worked as an occupational therapist in the public and private sectors, primarily in the fields of mental health and return to work. Megan most recently held the roles of Occupational Therapist Clinical Advisor and Program Manager at WorkSafeBC.

As a member of the executive leadership team, the Deputy Registrar works closely with the Registrar/CEO to ensure registration, quality assurance and practice programs are aligned with the strategic directions and mandate of the organization. The Deputy Registrar will also assume the role of overseeing the complaints program and assisting the public and registrants engaged in the complaints process.

Outside of Megan’s role at the College, she anticipates exploring all that Vancouver Island has to offer with her husband and two daughters.

We are excited to have her on board and look forward to registrants and our partners getting to know Megan. Welcome Megan.
