The Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT) has a long history of working with members to generate visions and develop guidelines for the present and future practice of occupational therapy in Canada.
- In the 1980s the CAOT produced the first set of guidelines, focused on client-centred practice.
- These were followed by the 1990s guidelines which saw the evolution of client-centred practice into enabling occupation.
- Enabling Occupation II (2007) involved more than 60 CAOT members who defined occupational therapy theory and practice in the 21st century.
- Enabling Occupation II (2007) offered visual tools to capture key content
in the first three Sections:
- Section I: Canadian Model of Occupational Performance & Engagement (CMOP-E)
- Section II: Canadian Model for Client-Centred Enablement (CMCE),
- Section III; Canadian Practice Process Framework (CPPF).
