The next Ontario Regional Council will be held virtually from March 9 - 10, 2022. Registration for council is available only through our online registration system.  Username, password and entitlement information for your local was sent via email on December 15, 2021. If you encounter difficulty logging on, please contact @email for assistance.

All locals are encouraged to consider equity representation (Women, Aboriginal and Workers of Colour, Workers with disAbilities, LGBTQ and Young Workers 35 and under) as part of their delegation.  As part of our ongoing commitment to equity we are requesting that locals utilize the special delegate entitlement allotted under the ORC Bylaws.

Please ensure your delegates are prepared to participate virtually until the conclusion of business, 5:00 p.m. or later, on Thursday March 10.   So much has changed since our last ORC in December 2019, and we are looking forward to welcoming you virtually to this next Ontario Regional Council!


Registration this year will be entirely online. Please visit https://register1.unifor.org. The registration deadline is February 16, 2022. Your Local’s registration information has been sent via email.
