There are 8 pre-conference workshops and 40+ panel and concurrent session to choose from for more details, view our Conference Program. The main social event will be held Sunday evening at the Hockey Hall of Fame, so keep this in mind when making travel arrangement. You won’t want to miss it.

CIRPA has made a change to their membership and conference registration process. In the past the purchase of a conference registration has included the membership. To allow CIRPA to properly associate the correct tax rates to the membership and conference fees, each of these will be purchased separately. 

For this reason, the conference registration will require you to first renew your CIRPA membership by logging into your account at If you are currently not a member, you can go to the login page and click on ‘Individual membership’ button to create an account and purchase your membership.

Once you have renewed your membership or created a new profile, a Conference Registration Badge should appear on your dashboard to allow you to register for the conference 

Registration is OPEN! To register for the conference go to and login to your profile. 

Early Bird Registration is open until September 24th, 2017.

We have provided discounted codes for booking your accommodations and flights; visit the Accommodations and About your stay pages for details.

This year we are re-introducing a Mobile App to network with colleagues, develop a personalized agenda, and provide up-to-date information about the conference. This mobile app is FREE and will be available for download in September. We encourage all delegates to download the app prior to the conference. Check back frequently on the ‘Mobile App’ webpage for the latest information.

Visit the CIRPA Toronto Conference page frequently for updated information on registration, accommodation, about your stay, contact information, agenda, key note speakers, Saturday Welcome Social, President’s Reception, Monday ‘Explore Toronto’ events and Mobile App.

We are looking for volunteers to assist with the conference; if you are interested, please contact Pina Marinelli-Henriques or Matthew Duncan for information.
