The 30 Years of Advocacy: Being the Change has been POSTPONED.
As you are aware the World Health Organization has declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic. As a result, The Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) has decided the safest thing to do is to postpone the Workers’ Compensation Conference scheduled for March 25-27, to a later date, based on precautionary principle.
