The Ontario Recreation Facilities Association (ORFA) was incorporated in 1951 as a provincially-recognized, not-for-profit, volunteer-driven recreation organization. Today, the ORFA has over 5,000 card-bearing members who operate and manage recreation facilities in
municipalities, educational institutions, government agencies, First Nations communities and in the private
recreation sector. Members also include businesses and industries that support the recreation sector. As a member-based organization, the ORFA is dedicated to providing leadership in training and development, and in products and services for the benefit of the recreation facility profession.
