The purpose of the Queen’s Park Lobby Day is to raise the profile of Conservation Officers and to inform and build support with MPPs about the complexity and risks of their work. This will also be an opportunity to advocate for officers’ longstanding demand for recognition of the true scope of their work and appropriate compensation.

The lobby day will start with a breakfast reception followed by scheduled meetings with available MPPs.

In preparation for the day, Lobby Training has been scheduled.

OPSEU Child Care Policy

OPSEU/SEFPO undertakes to provide child care service, when requested, at all union educationals, conventions, regional, divisional and demand-setting meetings where the membership requests at least three weeks prior to the event. Members who bring their children to OPSEU sponsored functions should normally be required to use the on-site child care service if it is available. The three week notice will ensure adequate time to process advances when requested. If no requests for on-site child care are received three weeks prior to the activity date, child care arrangements for on-site child care may not be made. If members then bring children to the event without the required notice, the member should be responsible for making his/her own child care arrangements.

Procedures for Online Submission of Forms

Online submission for this meeting is available. Members are able to complete their Event Registration, Hotel Booking and Childcare Registration through OPSEU’s Member Portal.
