Message to our Members, Partners and Supporters

Thank you for your ongoing support of Ontario East. We hope that you all are enduring the current situation as well as possible and want you to know that Ontario East is here to help if needed, and that we are working closely with our government partners to access the latest information to support our local economies.

Now more than ever we are counting on your support, as we will face new challenges in economic development and investment attraction to our region.

In the coming weeks, we will be distributing our membership invoices. Ontario East realizes there are many priorities and challenges for our members and understand if there are delays in processing payments. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to working with you all throughout and after we exit the current situation.

Due to the current COVID-19 Outbreak, the Ontario East Quarterly Meeting and Networking Event, scheduled for April 24th in Perth has been postponed until further notice. The event will be re-scheduled when appropriate. We look forward to seeing you then.

Ontario East Municipal Conference (OEMC) 2020
NAV Centre, Cornwall
September 16-18, 2020
The COVID-19 Outbreak is causing the rescheduling of many events around the world. However, we hope that by the autumn of this year that the risks of the virus will have sharply receded, thus enabling us to continue with our annual conference. We will continue to monitor the situation and will advise you as soon as possible should this change. In the meantime, we are continuing to work on the programming to ensure that OEMC 2020 is the great event you have come to expect and look forward to.

OEMC Exhibits and Sponsorships are an excellent opportunity to showcase and demonstrate your products and services to, not only economic development officers, but to all municipal staff and elected officials.
