MScOT Program & Curriculum Materials

The Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy Program at the University of Toronto is guided by the Department’s Vision, Mission and Values, relevant evidence-based theories and practices, the accreditation standards of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapy in Canada, the Minimum Standards for the Education of Occupational Therapists 2016 of the World Federation of Occupational Therapy, and the performance expectations for “competent” practice of occupational therapists as detailed in the Profile of Practice of Occupational Therapy in Canada (2012) and in the Essential Competencies of Practice for Occupational Therapists in Canada (2011). These materials provide the foundation for the program objectives and evaluation, curriculum planning, management and evaluation and the culture of educational scholarship in the Department.
