Welcome to the OTA & PTA EAP

The Occupational Therapist Assistant and Physiotherapist Assistant Education Accreditation Program (OTA & PTA EAP) is responsible for the accreditation of physiotherapist assistant and occupational therapist assistant education programs in Canada.

The OTA & PTA EAP is governed by both Physiotherapy Education Accreditation Canada (PEAC) and the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT) which are the accreditation agencies for Canadian entry-level physiotherapy and occupational therapy education programs respectively. The OTA & PTA EAP is administered by PEAC.

The OTA & PTA EAP is committed to following the Guidelines for Good Practice in the Accreditation of Professional Programs as developed by the Association of Accrediting Agencies of Canada (AAAC).

The OTA & PTA EAP is not involved in accreditation or registration of individual Occupational Therapist Assistants, Physiotherapist Assistants or Occupational Therapist Assistant/Physiotherapist Assistants.
