Help spread awareness about respiratory therapy throughout Canada!

Last year, CSRT staff sent out dozens of requests for proclamations recognizing the hard work of RTs. Below are many of the proclamations we received.

This year, we are handing this project back to you. Reach out to your city or provincial government with the template letter and send us any letters you receive, we will share them!

2021 Letters, submitted by you!


In 2020, the CSRT proudly partnered with many great communities across Canada to highlight of all of the hard work and dedication Respiratory Therapists had displayed over that past year, in particular support for Canadians through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thank you, respiratory therapists!
