COVID-19: OLA 2020 Events

OLA is pleased to host a number of professional development events throughout the spring and summer each year, planned thoughtfully by our members and supported by our staff. Given the current status of COVID-19 and following a thorough internal risk assessment, OLA has elected to postpone or cancel events taking place until July, 2020. OLA values the health and safety of our members and the communities that they serve, and is monitoring information coming from Toronto Public Health, the Ontario Health Ministry, and the Canadian Public Health Agency on an ongoing basis to determine next steps for other upcoming events scheduled for 2020.
