Helping Canadians get back to work.


Rehabilitation Therapy Assistants, or RTAs, work alongside physiotherapists and occupational therapists to help clients rehabilitate their injuries. RTAs can be found in hospitals, physiotherapy clinics, long-term care facilities and rehabilitation centres.

RTAs need to be cognizant of the best practices in occupational and physiotherapy practices, as well as emerging trends in the healthcare system, and the latest advances in theory and technology in the field. Getting relevant post-secondary training to be an RTA is vital, and the best place to get trained is the Rehabilitation Therapy Assistant diploma program at CDI College.
