PES Registration is open!


OPSBA’s 2023 Public Education Symposium (PES) will be held from January 26 to 28 at the Sheraton Centre, Toronto. We look forward to welcoming new and returning trustees in-person. 

PES is OPSBA’s premier professional development experience where public school board trustees from across the province learn, collaborate and connect. This year’s symposium theme is Optimism and Opportunity

We have a number of exciting speakers scheduled, including Chief Cadmus Delorme (Cowessess First Nation), Roda Muse (Secretary General, The Canadian Commission for UNESCO) and Dr. Nicholas Christakis (Professor of Social & Natural Science, Yale University). We’ve developed workshops for trustees new and returning with topics such as Governance, Indigenous Learning, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion, Communications and more! 

Trustees, Directors of Education, Supervisory Officers, Student Trustees and other education stakeholders are all warmly encouraged to attend PES.
