On behalf of AARFP (RFP) we would like to extend our appreciation to all those who are taking the necessary steps to ensure public and personal safety during these challenges times. In particular AARFP would like to thank the front-line health care workers who are taking care of our people in this Global pandemic.

RFP reinforces how important our recreation facilities are to the health and safety of our communities. To have these facilities closed to the public is a testament of the serious measures we all must take during this Covid-19 pandemic. Please continue to follow the recommendations of our Health minister as listed on Alberta.ca.

In addition, here are some resources developed by the Government of Alberta regarding emergency response and recovery.

The RFP Office staff are available during business hours Monday to Friday to respond to your email inquiries and phone calls. Please stay connected with us and let us know how we can support you during these difficult times. We ask for your patience if there is a delay in our response time.

The RFP Board recently made the difficult decision to cancel the annual April Conference and are investigating options for the Conference and other RFP course offerings in the future. We continue to monitor the news and advisories. We will advise participants a minimum of two weeks before your scheduled class on the status of your upcoming course. We are also working on adjusting some training to an online format and will inform you when that is ready. We are introducing a new online discussion series called "Connect with RFP" for you to chat and consult with your Recreation peers.

During this time of uncertainty please be safe and take measures to remain healthy.

If you have any questions, please contact Laurie Darvill, Executive Director by email laurie@aarfp.com.
