Advancing Public Affairs in a Time of Change: The PAAC Annual Conference, November 9-10 / Toronto and virtual

Clear your calendars on November 9 and 10 when the Public Affairs Association of Canada holds its annual conference.

We'd love you to join us as we discuss changes in lobbying regulations, the importance of DEI, digital advocacy, how you can grow your career in public affairs and more. There will also be networking opportunities and we'll also be celebrating the recipient of the Award of Distinction. For those who cannot join us in person, we will also be offering virtual attendance options. More details, including discounted hotel stays, coming soon.

Save the date and we hope to see you there!
