ORCA hosts a number of member-focused events each year.

  • The Together We Care Convention and Trade Show, hosted with the Ontario Long Term Care Association, is held in April of each year at the Toronto Congress Centre. It features education sessions for retirement and long term care home operators and staff as well as the largest trade show of its kind in Canada. There are also a number of networking opportunities throughout the two days. The Convention is open to both members and non-members, with members receiving a reduced rate.
  • Our Spring and Fall Road Shows travel to five cities throughout Ontario, bringing the latest information from regulatory authorities. In addition, they feature expert speakers discussing important and timely topics of interest to retirement home operators.  There is also an opportunity for regional networking. Road Shows are open to non-members for the morning session only.
  • The ORCA Summer Conference provides a three day conference experience packed with fun, golf and education programming. It brings together operator and commercial members and non-members for a great networking opportunity. The Conference is held in September each year.
