SMTRA is a collection of registered TRO (Therapeutic Recreation Ontario) members from the Simcoe Muskoka region. We aim to represent our geographical region at all TRO events, including the annual conference, and also to provide support and resources within the Simcoe-Muskoka region as active TRO members to other members of our professional field and to anyone interested in Therapeutic Recreation. This includes, but is not limited to, promoting current TRO initiatives, increasing awareness of Therapeutic Recreation in the Simcoe-Muskoka region and to provide networking and communication opportunities for our members.
SMTRA also seeks to share education opportunities, treatment and assessment practices and other Therapeutic Recreation material and resources with all members. Together we share ideas, program plans and implimentation techniques with eachother to increase our capacity to help the clients in our respective facility settings. In doing so we increase our commetence as Recreation Therapists and contribute to a larger professional body of practice.
