SAVE THE DATE: 2017 Ontario Anesthesia Meeting and Conference Weekend

Planning for the 2017 Ontario Anesthesia Meeting is well underway.  This year’s event will be held the weekend of September 14th-17th, 2017 at the Westin Harbour Castle conference center in Toronto. The Westin Harbour Castle is located on the shores of Lake Ontario, steps away from the Downtown Core near Toronto's exciting theatre and entertainment districts. This year our conference weekend will overlap with the world famous Toronto International Film Festival, so be sure to secure accommodations early!

Our annual Saturday night social event will be held at LOFT in the trendy Distillery Historic District on Saturday, September 16th. The Distillery Historic District is widely regarded as Canada’s premier arts, culture and entertainment destination. We invite all our members to come explore the unique shops, galleries, studios and restaurants, then join us for food and drinks as we mingle with Anesthesiologists across the province! Buy your tickets early, space is limited.

Our Leadership Development Program is now entering its eighth year.  Like last year, it will be combined with the Ontario Anesthesia Meeting and will be held on Thursday September 14th, 2017. This year’s topic is on Strategic InfluenceAdvocacy, Alliances and Accountability and will be facilitated by renowned Canadian political scientist and international relations expert Janice Stein.   This program will teach participants to work with matrices and networks as platforms of influence, as well as explore the nature of health care decision-making processes and influence at the local, provincial and federal levels.  It also teaches physicians to navigate the points of entry into political environments, demonstrate strategic advocacy skills, present persuasive messages more effectively and practice effective skills in working with the media and receive feedback.

Ontario's Anesthesiologists sponsors the 1-day program. All participants must be a member of the Section and must be registered for the Ontario Anesthesia Meeting. Applicants should email eanderson@ontariosanesthesiologists.ca and outline their interest in the workshop and the leadership roles they have had and anticipate holding in future.
