Ontario Health Coalition
» Health Action Assembly & Annual Conference
With a new Doug Ford government and a federal election coming up, the conference and Assembly 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. (Membership form on back.)
We try to hold the Assembly & Conference in an interesting neighbourhood for our members travelling into Toronto from other towns. This year, the venue in in the neighbourhood of Baldwin Street, celebrated for its diverse restaurants and boutiques. It borders Chinatown and Kensington Market. We have reserved a block of hotel rooms on Yonge St. which is a short streetcar ride away or a 25 minute walk.
Hotel Rooms: We have reserved a block at a reduced rate at the Holiday Inn, 30 Carlton St. at Yonge & College Sts (College St. turns into Carlton as it crosses Yonge St.) Rate $174 plus tax. Please cite “Ontario Health Coalition” as the group name and ask for the block rate. Tel: 416-977-6655. Deadline to book your hotel room and get the group rate: October 19.
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.
