Sponsorship & Advertising

The OAA offers certain marketing opportunities to better reach Ontario architects. Review the possibilities below to better assess which best align with your aims.

Please note that the biweekly e-newsletter, OAA News, and email communications are for Association information only. Advertising opportunities are not available for these vehicles.

 

Public Awareness Sponsorships

Each year, individuals and outside organizations can apply for the OAA’s Public Awareness Sponsorship program for assistance in carrying out projects or events promoting Ontario architecture to the public.

The OAA Communications and Public Education Committee (CPEC) measures all applications against four criteria:
• potential to increase public awareness/appreciation of architecture and the allied arts and sciences;
• innovation, creativity, and relevance;
• ability to attract an audience and successfully run event/initiative; and
• alignment to goals, priorities, and themes of the  five-year Strategic Plan.

Please note the Public Awareness Sponsorship program is intended for projects that have not yet occurred.

 Complete the submission form found  here and email to Cynthia Mykytyshyn, Public Outreach Specialist, at cynthiam@oaa.on.ca.

Deadline 1: Monday, January 29, 2024

CPEC reviews and approves of funding requests at its March meeting. In most cases, decisions are communicated to applicants in late March, with funding issued shortly thereafter for successful applicants. (Requests of more than $10,000 must be approved by OAA Council, requiring a longer timeline.)

Deadline 2: Monday, July 29, 2024

CPEC reviews and approves of funding requests at its August meeting. In most cases, decisions are communicated to applicants in late August, with funding issued shortly thereafter for successful applicants. (Requests of more than $10,000 must be approved by OAA Council, requiring a longer timeline.)


Conference

There are numerous sponsorship opportunities available for the annual OAA Conference held in May each year. This is a chance to support the profession and take advantage of exclusive high-profile, face-to-face interaction with members during the days of the event. It is held in Toronto on "even" years (2022, 2024, 2026) and in other locations on “odd” years (2021, 2023, 2025).

 


Event Listing

If you have an event that you would like to advertise to architects and is related to the business or practice architecture, please send your event information to Tamara King, Administrator, Website & Communications, at tamarak@oaa.on.ca.

Please provide the pertinent information (title, date, time, location, description, benefit, cost, host, sponsors) as well as a link, or contact, for more information. Examples of events include: tradeshows, conferences, lectures, exhibitions, book/film launches, and tours. The OAA will assess the information submitted; postings are accepted at the discretion of the Association.

ConEd Opportunities

While the Ontario Association of Architects does not endorse or accredit Continuing Education (ConEd) providers, it offers website posting opportunities for educational programs/events on the ConEd Opportunities page. If your organization is offering learning opportunities related to the business or practice of architecture and you would like to promote it to members and others with OAA status, this is an excellent opportunity to spread the word. See the links below for more information.

Job Signs



Job Signs are a great way to increase your practice's visibility. Proudly identify yourself as part of the profession and help to increase awareness of architects and architecture within your community.

Features:

Signs can be ordered mounted (on sintra: high density plastic backing) or unmounted. Consider a broader use for unmounted signs (peel and stick laminated output): apply directly to windows, hoarding, or your own choice of backing.

You have the option to order a custom size sign to meet your specific needs. Consider using the available space to promote your services or expertise.
