The ORFA is the only professional association in Ontario whose goal is to enhance the role of the recreation facility professional in the province. The Association succeeds at this goal by providing its members with access to primary and secondary sector-specific research information, unique professional development events, well-respected professional designations, and advocacy through ORFA’s key involvement in the Canadian Recreation Facilities Council.
