Welcome to OPA's 97th Annual Conference

Celebrating Our Profession

The 2017 OPA Annual Conference will take place on April 7 & 8, 2017, at the Omni King Edward Hotel in Toronto.

Welcome to the 2017 Ontario Psychiatric Association's Annual Conference!

On behalf of the Education Committee, it is our pleasure to welcome you again to the Omni King Edward Hotel for a wonderful weekend full of fun, learning and connecting with your peers.  We hope you are as excited as we are to see our 2017 line-up of speakers and look forward to seeing you on April 7th and 8th.

Please review the Conference schedule – we are confident that the spectrum of sessions will meet your professional education needs.

As psychiatrists, we are all well aware of the importance of the biopsychosocial model of health. So please come and soothe your diathesis and reduce your stress at our Friday night social! Come and meet your OPA Council, let us known your thoughts, or find out how you can get involved with your provincial organization. We always look forward to hearing from you about the programs and activities you want your provincial association to take on.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Conference.
