MSOT Corporate Structure

The Manitoba Society of Occupational Therapists is the only organization that represents occupational therapists and the profession of occupational therapy in Manitoba.

Provincially incorporated in 1964, MSOT is governed by a Board of Directors and bylaws and reports its activities to members at an annual general meeting and through an annual report.

MSOT’s objectives are:

  • to promote the profession of occupational therapy throughout Manitoba
  • to represent the interests of members to governments, educational institutions, other professions, businesses and to the public
  • to support the professional needs of occupational therapists in Manitoba, including professional development and research
  • to enhance the development and maintenance of liaison with other groups such as unions, regulators, educators, and provincial and national organizations.

Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors consists of five officers, five standing committee chairs, five co-chairs and four corresponding members. Directors may serve up to 3 2-year terms. No Director may serve more than 6 consecutive years. Members are welcome to attend Board meetings.
