OMSSA welcomes you back to our first in-person event in three years!*
As we hopefully move towards a post-pandemic world, the strain and stress of the last three years has become less focused on COVID-19 and more concerned with the pandemic’s impact on the communities we serve and plotting a course for socio-economic recovery.
But what does this recovery have in store for OMSSA Members and other organizations providing human services?
OMSSA’s 2022 Policy Conference brings human services leaders and policy experts, together with provincial leaders, stakeholder organizations, and other subject matter experts with the goal of discussing policy priorities into 2023 and beyond.
Conference topics will consider the year ahead, bringing together experts who can provide insights into topics such as child care and early childhood education, housing and homelessness, income and employment assistance, human service integration, and much more!
*We will be monitoring both the municipal and provincial public health guidelines to ensure a safe in-person event.
Registration for OMSSA's 2022 Policy Conference is open!.
The Conference takes place from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Daily
