Program Description

As a Recreation Therapy Professional, you will use meaningful recreation and leisure education, counselling and experiences to promote, restore, rehabilitate, and/or maintain quality of life and well-being. Therapeutic Recreation supports the development of strengths while addressing social, emotional, physical, spiritual and cognitive needs.Students complete term 1 through term 4 as a continual program with no term off. Graduates will have a 1 term head start on securing employment or potentially continuing their studies in other programs, while still receiving the same Ontario College Diploma as 2 year Recreation Therapy students. The program is OSAP eligible. Content and learning outcomes are the same for the traditional delivery and fast-track streams. Provides a great option for any applicant who is not relying on summer income to support their finances.
