Attendant Care, Protected Accounts and more for 2023

Happy New Year 

The Ontario Rehab Alliance team are hitting the ground running! 
A little update on our current advocacy measures and upcoming events.

Attendant Care Discussion Group

Attendant Care providers are experiencing escalating frustrations with the accident benefits scheme and insurer claims handling. Most recently we’ve heard of an escalation of requests for minute-by-minute billing, among other issues.

ORA is arranging a member-only creative problem solving discussion group.

At the meeting we will check-in with attendees to determine the priority issues, compare notes of successes and challenges and brainstorm an action plan. Actions might include such things as developing additional resources and templates, holding a virtual event to examine the big picture and sector-wide impact, and a refreshed advocacy strategy, etc..

Protected Accounts Discussion Group

In September, we hosted the MVA Rehab Conditions & Protected Accounts event, with guest speaker, Gord Harris of Harris Law.

Many of those in attendance felt that it would be beneficial to continue the discussion around protected accounts, including resource sharing and trouble-shooting any current concerns.

We are looking to pick back up on this member-only discussion come February.

We Would Love Your Input

We want to hear from you, our Ontario rehab community – members and non-members, colleagues, peers, associations, organizations, etc.

What kind of virtual event would you be interested in attending?
What are the topics that interest you most that would likely also interest your rehab provider colleagues?
What issues are you facing as a rehab service provider in the auto industry that you would like more support with?

In terms of our own ideas, ORA is already considering the following events for 2023:

  • Social Media Event – The Basics tied with ‘What To Do vs. What Not to Do as a Health Service Provider’
  • Ask A Lawyer Event – We are bringing this back by popular demand
  • Practicing Cultural Humility in Client Care
We would love to hear your ideas, thoughts, concerns and issues.
Anyone in the Ontario rehab community is welcome to share their thoughts.Share Your ORA Event Ideas Here

Protected Accounts and Rehab Community Calendar




Dear ORA members and colleagues,

Don’t you just hate finding out too late about an event that you would have gone to? Or trying to plan an event without knowing what else might be planned for the same day?

ORA to the rescue! 

Like many other organizations in this sector we’ve long wished there was a one-stop-browsing option for events. It is so frustrating to plan and promote an event only to discover that it competes and conflicts with others angling for the same audience. We got tired of hearing ourselves complain about this so we decided to take action!

While there’s sadly little we can do to end conflict around the world we can at least help to minimize calendar conflicts. Visit the Showroom to expand your knowledge of what is available and expand your audience reach as an organizer.

Hoping to see you in the Showroom sometime soon!
