Ontario Health Coalition
Health Action Assembly & Annual Conference
With mounting health cuts and an upcoming federal election the Ontario Health Coalition's Health Action Assembly & Conference will be our opportunity to regroup and plan our strategy to protect and expand public health care for all in light of the challenges ahead. Our members and affiliates, local health coalitions, and allies will gather to discuss the context, identify key issues and debate strategy. All members are welcome.
We try to hold the Assembly & Conference in an interesting neighbourhood for our members travelling into Toronto from other towns. This year, the Saturday venue is in the Church of the Holy Trinity nestled behind the Eaton Centre and the Sunday venue is at the Steelworkers Hall near Baldwin Street, a neighbourhood celebrated for its diverse restaurants and boutiques. It borders Chinatown and Kensington Market. We have arranged a special reduced price on hotel rooms at the Sheraton Centre on Queen St. between University Ave. & Bay St. The Sheraton Centre is across the street from the Church of the Holy Trinity and a twenty minute walk from the Steelworkers Hall.
Hotel Rooms: The Ontario Health Coalition has arranged a special reduced price at the Sheraton Centre in downtown Toronto on 123 Queen Street West. Rooms are $169 per night. To make a reservation call 1-888-627-7175 use the group name Ontario Health Coalition Room Block or group ON4303 or click this link to book your group rate for the Ontario Health Coalition room block online.

Local coalitions: are asked to please seek local funding first to subsidize your travel costs. If you need subsidy from the Ontario Health Coalition, we will fund up to two representatives from each active local health coalition including hotel and travel costs. All subsidies must be pre-approved by Natalie Mehra, executive director. Note: we will subsidize amounts up to the block rate for a hotel room and gas (not mileage) or train/plane.
