After a long wait, we are looking forward to seeing our members in person, at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel. Mark your Calendars for October 24th/29th, and register early to join us as ”Toronto Welcomes the World”. That is our Theme, which truly describes the vibrancy and excitement that can be found in the various neighbourhoods celebrating the many and varied cultures that are at home here. Within walking distance of the Hotel, are world class museums, galleries, shopping districts, and much more. Situated on the banks of Lake Ontario also provides opportunities to explore the many lakefront areas open to the public.
While at the Conference:
We highly recommend you take the time for a walk, a nip, a shop or a view in Toronto’s unique Victorian era Distillery District. Enjoy its European ambiance just minutes from the hotel. We are busy planning a tour of the distillery district on Friday Oct 25 including a tasting, snack and walking tour.
Thursday Oct 24 we will be taking a trip up the CN Tower before lunch (and hopefully a tour) just around the corner at the Steam Whistle Brewery.
Other activities in the planning are a Haunted Walk on Wednesday evening at 8:15 near the hotel Ghosts, graveyards, hangings, and haunts. Hear some of the most spine-tingling ghost stories from the earliest days of the city, including haunted theatres, unsolved mysteries, and the terrifying encounters at Mackenzie House.
You can expect to see an Agenda which includes meetings and presentations from our various National Departments, as well as interesting seminars, and of course our Annual General Meeting, to which all members are invited.
In line with our Theme, the Friday evening of the Conference will celebrate the food and entertainment from different parts of the World. Start thinking about the costume you will wear, which illustrates your own family background, or one which you admire! Some fun competitions are in the works, not only for the best costume, but in other areas which may surprise you! Come prepared for an evening to relax and enjoy after the serious business of meetings held most of the week are over.
Mark your Calendars with these dates October 24th – 30th 2022.
We will be waiting for you!
