ACOTRO (Association of Canadian Occupational Therapy Regulatory Organizations) is the national organization of occupational therapy regulators in Canada.

Comprised of 10 provincial members, we work together to support legislated mandates to protect the public by regulating the practice of occupational therapy in our respective provinces. Through ACOTRO, we collaborate to promote the best regulatory practices, build consistency across the country, heighten accountability to the public, and support each other in our efforts.

We do this by:

  • developing and advancing a national strategy for consistency in best regulatory practices
  • strengthening national and international shared efforts, networking, and information sharing
  • providing guidance and information to occupational therapists wanting to register in Canada
  • administering the Substantial Equivalency Assessment System (SEAS)
