What does a year of fun with our recreation therapy team look like? A little something like this!
Thanks to our generous supporters, Canuck Place is able to organize exciting adventures and memorable encounters for Canuck Place families all year long.
Recreation therapy outings not only help families create special memories together, they also empower families to get out of their comfort zone and seek out adaptive activities of their own, making the most of every moment.

Thank you to all my professors and advisors who have helped me discover my passion the last 2 years. And an even bigger thank you to my practicum and internship supervisors for showing me the ropes in the field.
A great way to spend a grey looking day .. .
Sometimes something as easy as a change in scenery can brighten your day. The cafe was open and this client enjoyed a freshly brewed cup of coffee, a really interesting photo book full of ww2 memorabilia and some conversation with residents that don’t live on her floor. It’s the simple things that make life grand. 💚
I'm so happy to see that CBC recently posted an article about a farm in Elgin County (which is right near my neck of the woods in London Ontario) that is supporting teenage victims of human trafficking through equine-assisted therapy. Check out the article link in my bio.
According to Farmtown's website, horses help calm and heal our inner-being. Equine work often helps inspire and facilitate change and growth more effectively than traditional approaches. #animalassitedtherapy#equinetherapy#recreationtherapy#canada#ldnontario
Her god daughter is a jewelry maker in Europe. We planned ahead and are working on our own special project to send overseas for the holidays.
Last week we visited a local semi precious stone bead shop and purchased our supplies.
Next week we will use the extra beads to make a matching bracelet.
Finally, we will package this nicely so it’s ready for the post office.
