Held at the Toronto Exhibition Centre in the Allstream Centre on October 20-21, the conference will be attended by a wide range of organizations including arts, sports, environment, social services and other sectors, and will feature two jam-packed days of speakers and workshops:

- How we can be stronger together through connected leadership (leadership)
October 21: Conference on Seizing Opportunities
Seizing Opportunities will focus on the province-wide topics that are affecting nonprofit work right now and in the near future. What’s happening in communities, in government and in the labour market that’s affecting Ontario nonprofits and charities? Discussions will cover current tactics and strategies to strengthen the sector and advance policy efforts to help nonprofits get their work done.
