2017 Shaping our Future

2017 ONPHA
& Trade Show

November 3-5 | Niagara Falls

Thank you for joining us at the 2017 ONPHA Conference and Trade Show!

This 2017 ONPHA Conference and Trade Show took place November 3-5, with Education Day on November 2, at the Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls. It focused on thinking strategically and creatively as we plan for the road ahead. Drawing from the experience of sector experts and peers, attendees had the opportunity to attend educational sessions covering hot topics such as End of Operating Agreements, governance, innovations in housing operations, supportive housing, aging in place and more.

In 2018, ONPHA returns to Toronto! We hope you will join us October 26-28 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto. Plus, don't miss our pre-conference event Education Day on October 25.
