OMHRA Conferences and One-Day Workshops

OMHRA holds a Spring Workshop and Fall Conference each year as well as timely one-day workshops on current issues.  

Fall Conference 2017

Blue Mountain Resort - Village Conference Centre September 13-15, 2017. 

The focus of this Fall's Conference will be the Changing Workplaces Review and Bill 148, Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017, along with HR best practices for effectively managing corporate data and IT infrastructures, and HR metrics and analytics.  As always, we strive to provide informative, dynamic and practical education and networking opportunities for our members, sponsors and partners.

You won't want to miss our keynote speaker - Michael "Pinnball" Clemons!

New for this event - we are adding an optional Blue Mountain Quest on Wednesday, September 13th from 1-4pm.  This fast-paced Blue Mountain adventure race combines digital photography and GPS technology with interactive team initiatives, while uniting team members as they work towards a common goal.  Experience all the sights, sounds and charm that Blue Mountain Resort and Village have to offer. From the mill pond to the ski lifts and all the quaint shops in between, your team will seek out hidden locations as they play to become the ultimate Blue Mountain Quest Champions!  (an additional fee applies) 

Please see the AGENDA for more details.


Please email if you have questions.  If you are interested in Sponsorship opportunities at this event, please contact Christine Ball at
