The intent of this ONCAT funded project was to identify and develop credit transfer pathways from relevant college diplomas into the Honours Bachelor of Outdoor Recreation (HBOR) program at Lakehead University and to identify and develop diploma and certificate pathways for HBOR graduates. The results of this project include the development/identification of: 1. Nine diploma to degree block transfer agreements into the HBOR degree program with four Ontario colleges and one Quebec college, 2. Two accelerated college diplomas and one certificate for HBOR graduates, and 3. A new HBOR Nature Based Therapeutic Recreation degree concentration developed collaboratively by college and university staff and students, an external credentialing agency and employers in the community. The project benefited greatly from the input, efforts and expertise of many college faculty and staff at Canadore College, Confederation College, Dawson College, Georgian College and Sault College.
