Statement of Volunteer Involvement

Member volunteers are essential to the work and vision of the Ontario Physiotherapy Association. They provide their experience, expertise and passion to support and strengthen the Association and the profession. At all levels of involvement, internal or external to OPA, member volunteers are vital to achieving the goals of the Association. Recognizing volunteers as an invaluable resource, OPA’s leadership and staff are committed to providing volunteers with ongoing support to ensure that volunteers are confident and successful in their roles. OPA members have access to meaningful volunteer opportunities and resources that help them, not only throughout their volunteer involvement with the Association, but in their continued growth and development as leaders in the profession. – OPA Board of Directors, 2016
