The Ontario Athletic Therapist Association (OATA) is the voluntary, not-for profit professional association that represents Certified Athletic Therapists in Ontario. The OATA is committed to keeping the personal information of its members and any industry partners (exhibitors and sponsors) accurate, confidential and secure.
For Our Members:
The primary purpose for which we collect and maintain member information is to ensure that our members qualify for membership within the association and, once established as a member in good standing, to provide members with membership services and exclusive benefits. Personal information is also collected and used for the payment of annual dues and registration fees for programs and/or events throughout the year.
The OATA does not give, rent, sell, barter, trade or distribute its Membership List.
The OATA shall not provide the membership list to another member or another peer organization or a sponsor/exhibitor except with the consent of the individual or as required by law.
Under certain exceptional circumstances, OATA may have a legal duty or right to disclose personal information without the individual’s knowledge or consent.
Various government agencies such as Canada Revenue Agency, Human Rights Commission, Ontario Ministry of Finance, Ontario Ministry of Labour, etc. and law enforcement, have the authority to review our files and interview our staff when deemed necessary. These agencies have their own strict privacy obligations.
