  • Working for a long term care organization in therapeutic activity?

How we can help...

  • Connect you with other Therapeutic Activity Professionals across the province in a ‘live’ online format to expand your knowledge.

The Therapeutic Activity Professional course is based upon 90 hours of instruction, designed to give students a theoretical framework of the profession, as well as provide knowledge of specific job functions, including client populations, approaches to care and documentation.

A second component of the course, to be completed concurrently, is a 90-hour field-experience practicum, where students will partner with an agency to be mentored by a member of the leadership team, complete assignments and have an opportunity for skills practice.


  • Students will develop an understanding of Therapeutic Recreation processes including assessment, goal setting, and evaluation.

  • Students will broaden their scope of understanding as it relates to the programming of a holistic nature (person centered care).

  • Students will develop professional skills that enable them to excel in a cooperative setting as part of a multidisciplinary team, as well as how to effectively self-manage and lead others in their roles.

  • Students will gain confidence and skills that enable them to effectively educate stakeholders on the value and role of a Therapeutic Activity Professional.
