OCA 2015 Spring Conference
The Ontario Coroners Association annual spring conference is set for April 18, 2015. This year we have moved into the heart of Toronto, with the event being held at the Park Hyatt, 4 Park Avenue.
In recognition of the Toronto Pan-Am Games we have chosen sport as our theme. We have engaged an internationally renowned speaker, Dr. Antonia Baum, President of the International Society for Sports Psychiatry to be our featured speaker to talk on Suicide in Athletes.
The full meeting agenda and registration can be found here. (no site login required)
We have changed the timing of our Annual General Meeting and will be holding it prior to our conference over a buffett lunch.
We have a block of rooms at reduced rate. They can be booked directly via the Park Hyatt (click here). There are limnited numbers, so book soon!
