About the Conference 

The event gathers many of Ontario’s postsecondary education professionals who are involved in student mobility and pathways. We have an excellent line up of speakers and workshops on emerging trends on transfer and learner mobility, both provincially and nationally, exploring new partnerships, and sharing best practices and research findings.
