We encourage you to register Wednesday so you can be on the Convention floor for the opening ceremonies. You won’t want to miss them!


Discounted parking at $16 per day is available at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC). We encourage all registrants to park and then register for Convention. Shuttles are available to take you to your designated Convention hotel.

Convention office

The Convention Office is located in room 103 on the lower level of MTCC. Staff are available to help any time between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

This year, OPSEU will have a Convention 2017 app for your smartphone or tablet. Staff in the Registration Office can help you sign up for this new feature. OPSEU has purchased Wi‑Fi, which will be available on the Convention floor in Constitution Hall.

Child care

If you have children registered in the child care, you can ask the OPSEU staff in the Registration Office for more details.

Convention bags

We received overwhelming feedback from previous attendees telling us you don’t want Convention documents mailed to your home. Therefore, this year all sections (A-H) will be put in every bag.

There is no need to print the electronic versions that will soon be available on the website.
