OPA is here to help with each stage of your career. We asked students and new graduates to identify what would be important and useful to them as they began their professional practice. Their recommendations formed the basis of this New Graduate Kit.
Contact us with any suggestions for this Toolkit.
OPA promotes the profession to the public in year round digital campaigns. In 2022 the #PhysiotherapyMatters campaign reached Ontarians with video stories from patients – reaching Ontarians through Facebook and YouTube video ads and posts on social media.
We continue to highlight PTs and PTAs as health care professionals that are safely and effectively providing care in-person and/or virtually. Check out the campaign website discoverphysiotherapy.ca.
Volunteer in Your Community
The Association is approached by organizations who are looking for a physiotherapist or physiotherapist assistant to be actively involved in their event. These opportunities may include wellness fairs, school fairs, and presentations to high school students.
OPA exhibits at a variety of conferences throughout the year and looks for member participation to help educate delegates about the Association and physiotherapy. Keep an eye out for member e-mails and check out the Volunteer Resources page for these opportunities.
Student Volunteer Program
OPA has created a student volunteer program to match students with practicing volunteer members to shadow them while they volunteer at various health and networking events across Ontario.
