Registration (R/TRO, R/TRO DIP) Maintenance

Since TRO’s inception (November 1999), the organization has worked diligently to advance the profession by developing several Professional Documents including a provincial Code of Ethics, Scope of Practice, Essential Competency Framework and a nationally recognized set of Standards of Practice. TRO is an organization that is based on a ‘grass roots’ philosophy, and has used a collaborative approach with its members in terms of content and acceptance of these critical documents. The Registration designation (R/TRO, R/TRO DIP) demonstrates a level of excellence in Therapeutic Recreation..

The Registration Maintenance process demonstrates the accountability to the Therapeutic Recreation profession in the province of Ontario through continuing with professional contributions after receiving the R/TRO, or R/TRO DIP designation.

The Registration Maintenance process requires that every 5 years, R/TRO and R/TRO DIP designation holders must renew their registration by providing proof of continued learning. This proof is obtained by collecting a minimum 25 professional contribution points within that timeframe
