Queen's Park Picks

Traditionally, the OAA marks the occasion with a reception at Queen’s Park for Members of Provincial Parliament to reveal the year’s Queen’s Park Picks. However, in light of COVID-19 and in the interest of public safety, we've brought the 2020 Queen's Park Picks online for a fully virtual experience.  The full series, spanning five years is also featured on the BLOAAG using the link below.
