ORCA Conference

September 15, 2020 – September 17, 2020

In these unprecedented times of challenges and changes, we have heard loud and clear from our operators and our commercial partners the importance of gathering – to connect, learn and share with one another, and to plan for what’s to come. ORCA is proud to host our first virtual ORCA CON taking place September 15-17, 2020. As always, this event remains geared towards retirement community owners and operators, regional and national directors, and senior and general managers. ORCA Operator Members, Commercial Partners, as well as non-members, are encouraged to attend this event.


Fall Regional Workshops


ORCA’s Fall Regional Workshops travel to retirement communities across Ontario each October and November. The workshops are intimate, interactive, and highlight some of the most challenging topics retirement community operators are currently facing. This year’s topics include elder abuse recognition and response, resident consent and capacity, supporting those living with dementia, and palliative and end of life care. Delegates will walk away from the workshop with practical tips and tools they can implement in their communities, as well as helpful resources and a toolkit. The workshops are also a great way to network with other operators in the area.
