In 2017, Ontario’s largest Child Welfare conference is back with over 20+ subjects on a diverse array of subject matter. We are expecting almost 300 professionals to attend from across Ontario and other provinces. Keynote speakers are being arranged to address topics of interest to all involved in the child welfare sector.
This year, ORCA is hosting the conference in partnership with the University of Toronto Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work.
