Advocacy Committee

 

The Advocacy Committee (and Licensure sub-committee) advocates for our members and those we serve to ensure the best possible care is received.

 

One of the key responsibilities of the Advocacy committee has been pursuing licensure so that Recreation Therapists are self-regulated in the province of Nova Scotia. Due to the tremendous amount of work that this project entailed a Licensure sub-committee was developed within the Advocacy committee. The Recreation Therapist Act is now in Draft 8 and we are currently waiting to hear back from the legislature.

 

It is each of our responsibilities to continue advocating for the TR profession. One way of doing this is by writing a letter to your MLA expressing the importance TR plays in "Securing Health and Wellness" in Nova Scotia and the impact that it can have on a client's life. Please see the link below for a listing of all MLA's currently sitting in the Nova Scotia House of Assembly and consider writing a letter to your MLA advocating for the TR field and its benefits!
