OMHRA Conferences and One-Day Workshops

OMHRA holds a Spring Workshop and Fall Conference each year as well as timely one-day workshops on current issues. 

Spring Conference 2018

April 11-13th, 2018

Where: Hilton Hotel, Niagara Falls, ON

When: April 11-13th, 2018

Our 2018 Spring Workshop is being held at the scenic Hilton Hotel Fallsview in Niagara Falls.  The desired outcome is to provide informative, dynamic, practical and municipally relevant education and networking opportunities for our members and sponsors.  The theme for the Spring Workshop is Stand Tall: Resilience and Well-being 2018: Enable your workforce to thrive in the face of change, stress, and disruption. Join us as we learn how to build departments and organizations that can recover better and thrive in the event of coming change in 2018.
Body Break's Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod will be our Keynote speakers.  Hal and Joanne are Canadian icons - for 25 years they have been on television in self-produced fitness interstitials that promote healthy and active living. Their energy is unquestionably infectious. They are also no strangers to competition; as amateur athletes, Hal played baseball for Team Canada, while Joanne represented Canada on the national track and field team. They recently participated as a dynamic duo in the Amazing Race - Canada!
