Welcome

coming to a screen near you - oppi20 goes virtual

OPPI is pleased to announce to members that we are coming to a screen near you by going virtual for our 2020 Conference!
 
As Ontario continues to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, the themes of demographics and housing are more relevant now than ever before. The pandemic has forced many Ontarians to challenge and rethink established ideas. We’re challenging RPPs to rethink placemaking, housing, demographics, community cohesion and security as we move closer to recovery and a new normal.

Whether you were born in Ontario or have come from afar, finding a place in evolving communities matters. We are asking communities across Ontario to be all things to all people, break down barriers and ensure everyone has a place of their own to call home.
 
Originally, OPPI20 was to take place in London, Ontario at RBC Place London. We’re extremely disappointed we will not be able to convene in person in London later this year; however, OPPI would like to thank the London conference team for their hard work and we cannot wait to be back in London in the future. For this year, OPPI is committed to producing an informative and exciting virtual program for members and we hope we can bring a bit of London to you.

There will be some differences this year with a virtual conference compared to previous years:
  • We will try to produce as many sessions in a webinar or other virtual format.; some sessions will be live, and others may be pre-recorded.
  • Instead of holding OPPI on October 7 and 8, we will host shorter sessions over a longer period of time to make it more convenient for members to participate, but the exact timing for OPPI20 is still to be determined.
  • OPPI welcomes returning and new sponsors for OPPI20. We value our relationships with our conference sponsors, and we will continue to profile your services and products that support and sustain community planning in Ontario.
More information, including registration and conference pricing will be made available this summer. In the meantime, please consult our OPPI20 conference site for information and FAQ.
