TRADESHOW DURING FORUM: We are giving an opportunity organizations to book a table to promote their services or programs that are related to Rural Newcomer Integration. Tables will be displayed within the main conference room and there will be an opportunity during break and part of lunch to network and visit other services. This will be an informal setting in that individuals who set up the table are also participants of the Forum. Set up will be on the evening before (29th) or before registration on the 30th from 7:30am-8:30am. Once you register, you will be asked if you would like to book a table or not. Space is limited for display tables. There is no additional cost to booking a table. If you indicate yes, you will be contacted 2 weeks prior to the event.

This Regional Forum is sponsored by OMAFRA and working in partnership with: Huron County, Perth County, Wellington County, Bruce County, Rural Employment Initiative, Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation, Rural Ontario Institute, and Four County Labour Market Planning Board.
