2021 Policy Conference

OMSSA hosted more than 330 human and public services leaders from across Ontario for our 2021 Policy Conference on November 30th, December 1st and 2nd. Thank you to all of those who presented, attended, engaged, and helped make the Conference a success. Our Conference provided the opportunity to explore ideas, inspire each other, and think about the post-pandemic Ontario we all want.

Over three mornings, our 2021 Policy Conference focused on strategic conversations about how human services leaders can navigate the realities and pressures of the present while still laying the groundwork for better futures for clients, organizations, and communities. This includes key issues such as: economic recovery through an equity-based lens, human services integration at the provincial level, creating a culture of anti-racism for human services practitioners, and equitable and affordable early childhood education and child care.
