About Us

The College of Occupational Therapists of British Columbia (COTBC) protects and serves the public by overseeing the profession of occupational therapy in the province. The COTBC gets its authority from provincial legislation, the BC Health Professions Act.

Despite its name, the College is not an educational institution. As a regulatory organization, the COTBC supports the public’s right to safe, competent and ethical care by occupational therapists.

COTBC does this by:

  • registering only those occupational therapists who are qualified to practice in BC
  • setting standards for practice and ethical conduct that every OT must follow
  • establishing programs for monitoring and supporting registrants’ continued competence
  • responding fairly to concerns and complaints raised about registrants’ practice or conduct
