We try to hold the Assembly & Conference in an interesting neighbourhood for our members travelling into Toronto from other towns. This year, the Saturday venue is in the Church of the Holy Trinity nestled behind the Eaton Centre (directly across the street from our hotel) and the Sunday venue is at the Steelworkers Hall near Baldwin Street, a neighbourhood celebrated for its diverse restaurants and boutiques. It borders Chinatown and Kensington Market. We have arranged a special reduced price on hotel rooms at the Sheraton Centre on Queen St. between University Ave. & Bay St. The Sheraton Centre is across the street from the Church of the Holy Trinity and a twenty minute walk from the Steelworker's Hall.
The Ontario Health Coalition has arranged a special reduced price at the Sheraton Centre in downtown Toronto on 123 Queen Street West.. Rooms are $169 per night. You must reserve your own room. To make a reservation call 1-888-627-7175 use the group name Ontario Health Coalition Room Block or group ON4303 or click this link to book your group rate for the Ontario Health Coalition room block online.
The last day to book a room under the Ontario Health Coalition room block and receive the group rates is October 24, 2019. Please ensure your room is booked at the very latest by that date to ensure there are rooms available at the Sheraton.
I have attached a PDF with information on parking at and near the Sheraton.
Local coalitions: are asked to please seek local funding first to subsidize your travel costs. If you need subsidy from the Ontario Health Coalition, we will fund up to two representatives from each active local health coalition including hotel and travel costs. All subsidies must be pre-approved by Natalie Mehra, executive director and the OHC will not pay subsidies for local coalitions that have not pre-requested and received authorization from Natalie. Note: we will subsidize amounts up to our block rate for a hotel room and gas (not mileage) or train/plane ticket.
