ORCA was pleased to host another successful Summer Conference with more than 250 delegates in attendance over the course of three days.


Held at Queen’s Landing in Niagara-on-the-Lake, for the first time, the conference was filled with numerous opportunities for networking and socialising. Keeping with tradition, there was a Dinner with a Board Member, Welcome reception and a golf tournament. In addition, this year, ORCA offered attendees the option to participate in a wine and shopping tour which was well received!

Education Day

The Education day focused on a Vision for Seniors’ Living: 2025 and Beyond. Local and international speakers came together and shared global innovations in technology, service delivery models and seniors housing to meet the needs of future retirement home residents. Speakers included Darrell Bricker, Zachary Benedict, Scott Ball, Bill Dillane, Karina Kuperus, Davis Park and Galibna Madjaroff. All speaker presentations are available on the member website.
