Save the Date! OCA Spring Conference 2019

Keep May 31-June 2 open in your calendar. We're going back to an old favourite for 2019. The Pillar and Post right in beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake is our host for this year. Rooms will be only  $249 a night for a 2 night stay. Saturday dinner will be at one of the local wineries.
We listened to you and have moved the conference a month later to give you a better experience when you're not learning from and socializing with your peers. 
We're finalizing the schedule and details, so expect more news and links to registration/hotel coming soon.

The  2019 membership drive will be starting soon. We are setting up a new module and payment partner to give you more control and decease our costs. Watch this space. We'll let you know when we are good to go.

Custom Coroner Jackets

A new vendor recently came forward with two types of jackets to help keep you warm and dry in the field. Chose either a 3 in 1 cold weather or wind and waterproof version. Both can be customized with OCA and OCC logos. A reflective coroner patch can be sewn on or detachable so you can get more use out of your garment.

The OCA gets no financial benefit from the sale of these items.
