Canadian School Boards Association Congress & OPSBA AGM & Program

CSBA Congress is the leading national professional development event for the school board sector in Canada and the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association is committed to building a program inspired by the outstanding work of school boards across the country. Planning is well underway for CSBA Congress 2019 and OPSBA will be offering a dynamic and inspiring program in Toronto in July 2019. Our theme is “Leading Today with a Vision for Tomorrow” and Ontario is proud to welcome our partners across Canada at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel from July 4 to 6.
