2019 – Niagara Falls, ON



This year’s GPOP conference format will be slightly different than previous years due to the earlier start of the CICan conference on Sunday. Please take this into consideration when finalizing your travel arrangements.

Saturday, May 4/19, 5:00 p.m.: We will kick off our conference with a combined keynote speaker and welcome reception. This will be the perfect opportunity to hear from keynote speaker Sharon Thira and meet your GPOP colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere. Food and refreshments will be provided.

Sunday, May 5/19, 7:30 a.m.: GPOP 2019 continues with breakfast, followed by a morning of networking, breakout discussions, GPOP awards, and lunch. We plan to adjourn by 12:30 p.m. to accommodate the 1:00 p.m. CICan official opening.

GPOP 2019 will focus on the themes of Inclusion, Balance and Harmony – both professionally and personally.  Our keynote will give an interactive presentation on Indigenous culture, history and learning, giving us a foundation for further discussions throughout the weekend. By the end of our conference, we are confidant that you will be re-energized and equipped with new and innovative ideas and solutions to take back to your College!
