What is vocational rehabilitation?

The practice of vocational rehabilitation requires unique multidisciplinary skills, experience, education and training to assist persons with functional, psychological, developmental, cognitive and emotional impairments and health conditions to overcome barriers to accessing, maintaining or returning to employment in the community and/or to quality of life.

VR professionals are a valuable member of a client’s rehabilitation team and work in collaboration with other health professionals such as occupational therapists, clinical counsellors, family physicians, physiotherapists, etc.
