What is Occupational Therapy?

It is a profession that helps individuals improve their capacities so that they can be autonomous in everyday life.

Can I consult even without a medical diagnosis by a doctor?

You do not need a prescription to consult our professionals. However, your public or private insurer may ask you for one.

Can I receive treatment at home?

Yes, it is possible, but generally it is better to come to the Clinic, where we have more materials than at your home. Also, people on medical leave often experience some isolation. Coming to the Clinic can have beneficial effects on several levels, such as relieving the feeling of isolation by meeting people who are experiencing similar problems.

Can I receive treatment on weekends?

We are closed on weekends.

What kind of payments do you accept?

In a large majority of cases, we charge fees directly to the insurer. If you are a private customer then we accept cash, check and debit.

I have a 19 year old autistic son. Should he consult as a "child" or "adult"?

It depends on your goals as well as your son’s level of functioning. Contact us and we will offer you personalized service adapted to your needs by recommending the person most likely to meet your goals.

My mother needs assistance if she is to remain in her house. How can you help us?

We have the expertise to do a home support needs assessment. Our assessment makes it possible to obtain the appropriate recommendations to enable the person to be autonomous at home, if necessary.

I have burn injuries. Can you help me become functional again?

Depending on the level of injury, there are specialized services for burn victims in the public sector. We offer services for people who have received a transplant or who have lost capacity following an accident such as burns.

I think I need a scooter. Can you evaluate me?

Yes, we have the expertise to do that. Contact Us

I received a notice from the SAAQ to have me assessed by an occupational therapist to keep my driver's license. Can you test me?

Yes, we have the expertise to do that test.

I got burnout and I am worried about the day I will have to go back to work. Can you help me?

Certainly we can. Contact Us

As a lawyer, I have to prove that my client is incapable of occupying the same job he had before his accident. What legal expertise do you offer me?

We can do an assessment of functional abilities or job evaluation in relation to functional limitations.

I was prescribed treatments and an orthotic for my hand. Do you have someone who can take care of me?

Certainly we do. Contact Us

Can an interdisciplinary team help me quickly become self-sufficient again?

Yes, evidence supports this type of intervention, particularly in the case of chronic pain. As each case is unique, contact us to explain yours.

The doctor has mentioned dementia with respect to my father! Will he still be able to live in his house?

Since each case is unique, a cognitive functions assessment should be carried out. The assessment data will allow other professionals such as your doctor to give you an accurate idea of your father's needs.

Every time I spend more than two hours in my office, I get back spasms. Can you check out my ergonomics at work?

Certainly we can. Contact Us

I don’t even know how to hammer a nail! I need someone to install a grab bar at the right place above my mother's bath. Do you do this kind of work?

No; you should contact a construction contractor.

Can we start treatment without taking the evaluation?

We need to evaluate you to know which treatments you personally need. In rehabilitation there isn’t one magic recipe that fits all, because each human has different abilities, in a different context with a different story. Not evaluating you would amount to setting goals randomly without considering your reality.

My hands are all twisted by arthritis. Can you make my life easier?

We can teach energy conservation techniques and ways to live better with the disease.

The only time I have for treatments is very early in the morning or late afternoon. Is that possible for you?

Yes, we have appointment slots available at these times. On the other hand, these popular appointments times may already booked by other clients. We always take into account the needs of our clientele and offer them the times they prefer, whenever possible.

I do not want to go back to work. Can you help me?

First of all, why do you not want to go back to work? Do you have too much pains? Are you afraid of hurting yourself again? Are you having bouts of depression? Have you lost your passion for your work?


Depending on the answer to this fundamental question, we can help you better manage the pain, increase your capacities, accompany you in your return to the job, or alleviate your depressed state.


When it comes to your passion for your work, sometimes you have to ask yourself personally. But one thing is for sure: we know that the status quo in a case of disability is not good for anyone. Yes, we can help.

How experienced are your professionals?

65% of our staff has 5 years and more seniority and 30% accumulates 10 years and more. Our team is solid and experienced.

I am a physiotherapist and I have a client who needs a psychologist and an occupational therapist. Can we work as a team?

We have been doing this since 1997.

Do you give mental health treatments?

Yes, in addition to our psychologists, all of our occupational therapists in the Office Employees and Workers Clinical program are trained to provide mental health treatments. We believe that the individual is a whole with a physical dimension and a psychological dimension. With us, you will be taken care of in a holistic way.
