Corporate Structures

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.

Collaborate. Network. Contribute.
Join the MSOT Board of Directors!

MSOT is governed by a Board of Directors elected by the members. Volunteering provides an excellent opportunity to promote the profession to the public, become involved in the community and develop skills integral to the profession. Without the time, energy and skills that our board members contribute to the association, occupational therapy would look very different in our province.

If you are interested in volunteering with MSOT or joining the Board of Directors, contact us via e-mail ( to let us know your interests.

MSOT is not an organization that can support exposure of the profession to perspective students.
