COVID-19 Temporary Provisional License for Cross Jurisdictional Telepractice
Need to reduce exposure of patients and providers during the pandemic and maintain continuity of care even if services can't be offered in person for everyone.
During the COVID-19 Pandemic, NLOTB is expediting cross jurisdictional telepractice in situations where occupational therapy services are being provided/continued from a different jurisdiction.
Occupational therapists may be eligible for a Temporary Provisional license for 30 days to provide services via telepractice. Eligibility includes current licensing in another Canadian jurisdiction and professional liability insurance. A Letter of Good Standing/Regulatory History is required from your current jurisdiction.
The Newfoundland Labrador Occupational Therapy Board (NLOTB) is the governing body responsible for regulating the practice of occupational therapy in Newfoundland and Labrador. Only individuals who are registered with the NLOTB may use the title "occupational therapist".
