Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy
The Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy is the birthplace of occupational therapy in Canada. It has a rich history of research, and in developing innovative ways to help people regain function after illness or injury, helping them to be productive in their lives and in society, care for themselves, and pursue activities they enjoy. We train experts who investigate the physical effects of an injury or disease, while also addressing the psycho-social, community and environmental factors that influence function.
