Benefits-2

MSOT continues to be an important voice representing Manitoban occupational therapists. The Board of Directors is a dedicated and energetic team who strives to represent OT’s in various platforms, working with a variety of community partners both locally and nationally. Our success as an organization is driven by membership and engagement of Manitoba occupational therapists. Membership is required to renew their registration to renew their registration on an annual basis. MSOT membership can be completed jointly with online COTM registration.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank the committed membership body who have shown continued support for the work of the Board and its Committees. We look forward to your continued support this coming membership year. Join us so we can serve you better.
