This journal is intended to be the birthplace of collaboration in hopes of bridging the gap between education and practice. TR/RT has well-seated roots as an allied health profession in Canada; however, there still remains great variability in qualifications, roles, titles, and settings across the country. With several provincial associations actively pursuing regulation, and the focus of government on the protection of the public, there is an imminent need for consistency within our field in order for us to grow as a profession. For too long, we have existed in silos, undervaluing the power of collaboration in facilitating change. As we continue to establish ourselves as a Canadian peer-reviewed journal, each issue will feature an invited article from a scholar who has had a particularly positive impact on the RT/TR profession.
