OAA Annual Conference

Conference Overview

The OAA Conference is an annual event, traditionally held in May. It is held in Toronto in "even" years (e.g. 2018, 2022) and in other cities on "odd" years (e.g. 2019, 2023). The Conference program includes a variety of Continuing Education courses, tours, and special events.  

Members of Ontario's architecture profession attend the yearly Conference to help fulfil their professional accreditation/education requirements. It also serves as a networking opportunity to connect with colleagues and leaders in the design community.  Conference events and seminars are also open to members of the public. If you are interested in learning more about the architectural profession and topics that affect the design community, be sure to attend. Registration for the Conference typically begins in March. 

Please note that the OAA Conference is going digital for 2021 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In lieu of a previously planned in-person event for Niagara Falls, there will be online programming available throughout the year, including virtual tours planned for late winter and early spring.

From May 17 through 21, the OAA will offer a series of concentrated events—an online Conference Week that includes a keynote talk, the SHIFT2021 presentation, and Continuing Education sessions under the “Cultivate Inclusivity” theme. Other events, such as the Annual General Meeting (AGM), plenary, and additional virtual tours, will be hosted online throughout the year.
