Code of Ethics

Guiding BC occupational therapists is their Code of Ethics. This code helps:

  • Occupational therapists keep the client’s welfare as the primary concern in all decision making.
  • Provides you with information about the basic ethical care and services you can expect from a registered occupational therapist.
  • Guide the establishment of standards and guidelines for the profession’s regulatory responsibilities and activities.

Occupational therapists are expected to be familiar with this code and to integrate it into their day-to-day practice.
