Your Opportunity:

Are you an Occupational Therapist who loves outdoor adventure and wide open spaces? Rocky Mountain House is a friendly, multicultural town that provides residents with an outstanding quality of life in an active community. Less than an hour west of the city of Red Deer, Rocky Mountain House is the gateway to the David Thompson Country/Recreation Area, as well as Banff and Jasper National Parks. The area is rich in outdoor recreation opportunities with camping, fishing, hiking, geocaching, golfing, sightseeing, adventure tours to name a few! The town’s slogan is “where adventure begins” for good reason!

As our Occupational Therapist I, you will be working both independently and as part of an interdisciplinary team, responsible for assessing individual needs based on abilities, providing therapeutic interventions and follow-up, as well as program evaluation to ensure optimal client outcomes.
