Welcome to the NPAO 2023 Annual Conference

On behalf of the Nurse Practitioners’ Association of Ontario (NPAO) and the 2023 Conference Planning Committee, we look forward to welcoming you to Toronto, Ontario on September 20 – 22 to the Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel & Conference Centre.

This years’ Conference theme is NPAO: Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence. The Nurse Practitioners’ Association of Ontario (NPAO) was founded in 1973 to represent NPs working in primary health care settings, but expanded its mandate in 1998 to include NPs working in all settings. NPAO provides its members with professional support and educational opportunities. As the voice of NPs in Ontario, the Association continues to lobby for integration and policy to support integration of NPs into our health system as well as for the critical health issues that affect the well-being of individuals, families and communities. NPAO maintains a strong commitment to the profession of nursing in Ontario.

This professional conference for NPs offers a blend of clinical and professional content. This is the largest professional conference that brings NPs together to have meaningful dialogue about issues of critical importance to NP practice across a wide range of specialties and practice settings.

Hands-on skill-based workshops are back and taking place on Wednesday, September 20. September 21 & 22 will offer a selection of sponsored symposia, engaging plenary and concurrent sessions. Plan to visit the exhibit hall on Friday, where you can explore exhibits, find meals and refreshments and network with fellow delegates.

On Wednesday, September 20 you will not want to miss the 50th Anniversary Welcome Reception and Awards Celebration. It’s a great opportunity to connect with colleagues and celebrate accomplishments of NPs!

Enjoy the conference, network with colleagues, and have fun celebrating NPAO and 50 Years of excellence!

Be sure to register early to lock in your spot!
