Rural Ontario Municipal Association (ROMA) Conference

January 27, 2019 - January 30, 2019
Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, 123 Queen St W
Toronto, Ontario Canada

ROMA hosted its first rural municipal conference in 1934 and they were an important tradition for more than 65 years. By reviving this tradition, we believe rural priorities can be better aligned, better understood, and better addressed. Approximately 1,000 municipal officials from across the province and leading thinkers come together to discuss topics of local, provincial, national, and international importance. The goal is to invigorate public debate about how Ontario’s municipalities will respond to emergent challenges and opportunities.

Clarion Hotel & Congress Trondheim, Norway + Google Map

Rural futures in a complex world. Rural futures sit at the nexus of contemporary global challenges.
