Get your referral

Ask your doctor to fill in this referral and we’d be happy to fit you with your new assistive device.

The referral is a document that medical professionals use to refer patients from one clinic or physician to another. In Ontario, the referral is necessary for full coverage from OHIP, ADP, and other government and non-profit organizations.

My contact details:




Thank you,



Your physician will send the referral document to us at ATC.

Your physician will be used to sending out referrals; they do it daily! The document will have all the information they need to complete the referral for you.


We’ll call you up to make an appointment!

Once we receive the referral we’ll give you a call to setup an appointment. We’ll usually follow up within 48 hours of receiving the referral, and our waiting time for appointments are typically around 2-3 weeks.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ATC has had to limit the number of referrals we can see. Consequently, we can only accommodate our internally referred patients and will not be accepting any community referrals for our Seating and AAC clinics at this time.

Thank you for your understanding.
