The next Ontario Regional Council will be held in-person at the Sheraton Centre Toronto, from March 4 - 5, 2022.

Registration for council is available only through our online registration system.  Username, Password and entitlement information for your local will be sent via email.  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 stay until the conclusion of business, 5:00 p.m. or later, on Saturday March 5.  Delegates should be prepared to travel out on March 6 if necessary.  

So much has changed since our last ORC in December 2019, and we are looking forward to welcoming you back to the Sheraton Centre!
