We are a team of Canadian Certified Pedorthists who specialize in Pedorthic care, offering conservative solutions to alleviate pain and enhance comfort and mobility.
In 2015, Gaetan Girard had a vision of raising the bar for Pedorthic care and orthotic manufacturing. Based on his years of experience in the field, he dared to question, ‘What if?’
- What if an orthotic lab could provide a fully custom made, hand crafted device made with precision, unsurpassed quality and consistency?
- What if an orthotic lab allowed full visibility to anyone who came through the door?
- What if an orthotic lab operated within a full service Pedorthic centre that employed a team of Certified Pedorthists providing optimal customer care?
The answers to these questions was the inception of Infinity Orthotic Centre.
Under Gaetan’s leadership and strong value of integrity, Infinity’s model of integrated care provides patients with options for pain management but also a path for preventative wellness. We do not want just happy feet, we want happy people.
Infinity strives to uphold a philosophy that puts the customer first. We value having flexibility in the services we offer and customizing how to best serve our customers beginning right at the initial assessment. We emphasize patient education and believe the better informed a customer is about their condition, foot type and footwear, the better they can make a decision towards optimal health. One of our strongest mandates at Infinity is the continuation of our own education, personal and professional evolution and progress. We are passionate about learning and embrace the pursuit of knowledge in regards to new clinical best practices, technologies, techniques and philosophies.
Our Infinity team is mindful that individuals matter. You matter. The connections we make and the relationships we can foster allow us to better support one another and the community at large. We are grounded by underlying values of respect and empathy and we strive to help make people better, one step at a time.
To Honour the connections of a committed treatment process with a dedication to excellence.

Lab Technician, Canadian Certified Pedorthist
As a graduate of Honours Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo and having over 20 years of experience working as a Pedorthist, Casey is thrilled to have found such a dynamic and progressive environment to continue her career manufacturing custom made orthotics. Casey began work as a Certified Pedorthist in 1994 in Toronto at Sunnybrook Hospital. That experience sparked a love for learning more about the field and the intricacies involved in helping people achieve greater comfort and improved mechanics. She became certified as both a Pedorthic Technician and Certified Pedorthist. Subsequently, Casey volunteered for many years with the Pedorthic Association of Canada primarily in the area of examination and certification as well as being part of the team that began efforts to found and establish the College of Pedorthics.
Casey is interested in achieving a balance of good health, harmony and humour while raising two spunky and engaging daughters. Casey is passionate about activity and fitness and enjoys running in the rain, finding a place amongst regulars at the gym and (leaning towards) finding moments of mindfulness. You can find Casey starting the day, up with the sun and humming some broadway tunes.
