CHTA Board of Directors
The CHTA is managed by volunteer board members who live and work in various communities across Canada.
Please note that board members endeavour to reply in a timely manner to inquiries that relate to membership in the CHTA, postings for the HT Job Board, submissions to the CHTA newsletter, CHTA education guidelines, and the voluntary professional registration process.
Due to the many inquiries received via this website, board members are unable to respond to general questions such as those relating to horticulture, gardening, starting a small business, funding therapeutic programs, finding employment, or researching for student assignments.
The CHTA's bi-monthly newsletter, available to members, provides information about TH and HT programs in various parts of Canada as well as useful resources for program planning and therapeutic activities.
Please explore the information and many links provided on the CHTA website and consider becoming a member of the CHTA.
