We have a full day planned - the full agenda has been sent separately and is on the registration page. After a morning of business with the AGM and discussion with OPSEU reps, we will have lunch, then move on to presentations from fellow coroners and death investigation partners. We then begin an evening of socializing with our colleagues, starting with  a meet and greet with cash bar, then moving on to dinner with wine before closing with a historical ghost tour through Old Niagara-on-the-Lake. Breakfast will be provided on Sunday.

We have a block of rooms at the Pillar and Post. Space is limited and with isolation fatigue the town is booking up fast.

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.
