Description:This two-year Occupational Therapist Assistant/ Physiotherapist Assistant program prepares graduates to work under the supervision of and in collaboration with a registered occupational therapist and physiotherapist.

The program develops students' knowledge and skills in the following areas: respect for the uniqueness of individuals; interpersonal and communication skills; critical thinking, problem solving, and decision-making skills.

As a member of the occupational therapy and physiotherapy teams, occupational therapist and physiotherapist assistants work with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and agencies to help individuals perform self-care, promote movement, improve function, and participate in leisure -- enabling clients to meet their expected outcomes by contributing to the implementation and modification of occupational therapy and physiotherapy programs and services. Field placements are an integral aspect of this program, applying theoretical components designed to reflect professional realities.
