It’s that time of year again – The Fall Education Conference is coming on November 3, 2018 and will be held at the Holiday Inn Guelph.  Please share information about the 2018 Fall Education Conference to those you think would be interested in attending. Everyone is welcome.

The major events of the education program are the Spring and Fall Education Conferences, which offer training workshops, a networking luncheon, and updates from the housing co-op sector.  Conference brochures & registration forms are sent to co-op offices a few months prior to the conference date.

Youth Registration Rate: We are facilitating a Youth Opportunities in the Co-op Sector workshop and would love to have your co-op youth attend the session!  We are offering a $80 youth rate for conference participants between ages 16 and 30 years old.

Travel Assistance: Our conference is being held in Guelph this time round, and if your co-op is experiencing a barrier due to travel, please contact the COCHF office.  The federation can provide assistance to make travel arrangements upon request.  For more information, contact us at 519-579-2424 /
