ctra conference 2009 20110210 1060817048It is the Therapeutic Recreation Association of Atlantic Canada's belief that our members provide and support Therapeutic Recreation Services across the continuum of care. This process of care incorporates functional intervention, education and participation focused on the participants needs, abilities and interests. The outcome of this care is to assist individuals who experience illness and/or disabling conditions, along with their supporters, in achieving personal goals toward wellness and maintaining quality of life. Our members believe TR Services are provided in a wide variety of settings, such as community, home based, care centres, day programs, long term care facilities, recreation centres and in schools. TRAAC initiatives are embraced by all members; professional, supportive and  student.
