Education Institution Partnership (EIP) Terms

Both Therapeutic Recreation Ontario (TRO) and its Education Institution Partners are committed to the advancement of the profession through the education of Therapeutic Recreation (TR) professionals. Through this EIP, both parties will work together to provide students interested in the field of Therapeutic Recreation an opportunity to experience the benefits of membership with TRO, the only professional association that represents TR professionals in the province, through a free student membership. This agreement outlines the responsibilities of each organization.   

The term for the agreement is one year for the period of September 1 – August 31. It will take effect once the agreement has been signed by both parties and the fee ($350) associated with this agreement has been received by TRO.

TRO agrees to:

  • Offer a free student associate membership to students who are enrolled at the education institution.
  • Offer one (1) free membership (Professional or Associate) to an educator at the school.
  • Once payment has been received, instructions of how to activate the membership will be sent to the educator.
  • Offer a transition discount to graduates of the education institution who have activated their free student membership
  • Give a presentation to students outlining the benefits of membership with TRO. Time and location (in-person or electronic) to be negotiated between the professor and TRO staff.
