Cancellation of CTRA 2020 Annual Conference

CTRA has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 Annual Conference scheduled for May 6-8, 2020 in Jasper, Alberta due to the continued rapid spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).

The CTRA Board of Directors and staff have been following the advice of the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Government of Canada, the World Health Organization and multiple regional and national authorities in Canada, and ultimately one need remained at the forefront of our decision and planning: the
need to protect the health and well being of Recreation Therapists, our members, delegates, volunteers, staff and clients.

Please read the below documents for the full statement from the CTRA Executive Director.
