Careers - September 2022

Graduates are prepared to enter the health-care industry working in various health-care settings (e.g., hospitals, retirement homes or long-term care facilities, private rehabilitation clinics and other health-related community agencies) as an occupational therapist and physiotherapist assistant under the supervision of a licensed physiotherapist or occupational therapist. This two-year diploma program is not a direct route to becoming a registered OT or PT. Applicants are advised to seek career counselling support to determine appropriate pathways for entry into the master's degree program to become a registered OT and/or PT if this is a route they wish to take.

On average, 96% of graduates from the last three years (2018 to 2020) found employment within six months of graduation.
