The Canadian Model of Occupational Performance and Engagement (CMOP-E) is an occupational performance model, which is evolved from the Canadian Model of Occupational Performance (CMOP). The CMOP-E includes three main components: person, environment, and occupation. In this model, the inner part represents “Person”, and its center is the spirituality of a person. The other components surrounding a person’s spirituality are affective, physical, and cognitive abilities. The intermediate circle represents “Occupation”, which is performed by the person in the environment and includes three domains of self-care, productivity, and leisure. The outermost circle represents the external “Environment” including physical, social, cultural, and institutional environment of the client. The interaction between the person, environment and occupation results in occupational performance, which is the ability of a person to perform occupations and daily engagements. When compared to the CMOP, the CMOP-E goes beyond occupational performance to cover the concept of the occupational engagement. This expansion is related to how this model can be used to enable clients to choose and perform their meaningful occupation in their environment. In evaluation, occupational therapists can use the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) to identify the level of difficulty in the client’s occupational performance. The client can also give scores to the level of satisfaction and performance of those identified difficult occupations. Occupational therapists are thus able to provide treatment according to the client’s individual needs. This will help occupational therapists to develop client-centered treatment plan, and it will also allow the client to engage in treatment planning and increase their motivation and compliance in treatment.

This model may need to consider clients’ cognitive level and adapt the way to use the COPM for evaluation.
