Message From the Co-Chairs
Welcome to the 26th Annual Canadian Therapeutic Recreation Association Conference! As amazing Therapeutic Recreation professionals we have all excelled in virtual learning, treatment and connections for both ourselves and our clientele, but who is ready to see, learn and connect IN PERSON! We are excited to provide this tremendous opportunity to highlight, build knowledge around, and expand our profession. The planning team is already hard at work making sure we make this conference memorable!
The Theme for this year’s Conference is Climb, Connect and Celebrate. TR continues to CLIMB upward with significant progress in areas of research, innovation, and knowledge translation, providing new perspectives at the top of the peaks. We will CONNECT in person for the first time in 4 years! It is an opportunity to learn, grow and collaborate with colleagues from across this great nation and around the world to enhance our client-centered practice. Let’s CELEBRATE our accomplishments, the growth and resilience of our profession and our colleagues, connections made and the friendships that have evolved.
We are so excited to get to host this years’ CTRA conference in one of the most beautiful places on earth, The Rocky Mountains. Jasper Park Lodge is located just outside of the town of Jasper Alberta. It has beautiful views of the mountains and our main conference room is overlooking beautiful Lac Beauvert. After plenty of opportunities to learn, you will be able to enjoy nature hikes, outdoor swimming pools, fine dining and of course much needed time at the Spa. These pandemic years have been tough, its time to spoil yourselves.
We look so forward to seeing everyone in person, being at a world class resort and having an open mind and willingness to learn. Please Join us as we expand our knowledge, climb to new heights, and connect in nature and celebrate our advancements within Therapeutic Recreation.
Please take a peek at the CTRA website for more details – the conference schedule and registration are coming soon!
