What TRO Does
Established in 1999, Therapeutic Recreation Ontario (TRO) is the only professional association that represents Therapeutic Recreation practitioners in the province. Our membership of more than 1,800 includes practitioners, educators, and students. Our mission is to lead the TR profession through growth, advocacy, and innovation. We do this by offering quality membership services including professional development, information, networking, advocacy, and evidence-based research and best practices. We set the standard for excellence in the profession through our Designation (R/TRO).
TRO advocates on behalf of our members and the TR profession to government officials, employers and other professional partners. We will continue to advocate for our members and for the profession, and we encourage our members to join us in these efforts.
TRO has grown significantly over the years and our plan is to continue to be intentional about our growth – both with respect to the size of our membership as well as financially, so that we can better serve our members.
TRO is committed to supporting our members’ professional development by providing access to educational opportunities and resources. We encourage our members to pursue the R/TRO designation and to continue to advance the profession through continual learning and development.
