According to the Government of Canada Occupational Summary, demand for occupational therapists and other professional occupations in therapy and assessment in Canada will outstrip supply over the period 2015 to 2024*. This is due in part to the increasing health needs of our growing elderly population. For instance, the elderly are more prone to debilitating conditions such as arthritis and stroke. They put their trust in the treatments provided by medical professionals, and occupational therapy aides play an important role working alongside professional occupational therapists.

Know the Requirements for Success. It is important to remember that licensing, apprenticeship, certification, training or other requirements may be applicable to some careers in some or all provinces or localities or to jobs with some employers. As a result, we strongly advise you to check with your provincial or local government (for example licensing board or apprenticeship agency) or potential employers to find out whether any of these requirements are applicable to the career or job that you have chosen.
