Conference Overview

The OAA Conference is an annual event, traditionally held in May. It is held in Toronto in "even" years (e.g. 2018, 2022) and in other cities on "odd" years (e.g. 2019, 2023). The Conference program includes a variety of Continuing Education courses, tours, and special events.

Members of Ontario's architecture profession attend the yearly Conference to help fulfil their professional accreditation/education requirements. It also serves as a networking opportunity to connect with colleagues and leaders in the design community. Conference events and seminars are also open to members of the public. If you are interested in learning more about the architectural profession and topics that affect the design community, be sure to attend.
