The ADR Institute of Ontario (ADRIO) is having our Annual General Meeting on June 8, 2017, at Novotel Toronto, North York, ON. Join us for a full day of professional development and networking opportunities.
We have planned three exciting and informative workshops that will center around the discourse of Mental Health, a topic that is deeply relevant to all areas of the ADR community.
Additionally, a keynote address by Susan E. Opler will take place later in the day.
This day is an occasion to participate in shaping the future of ADRIO, network, learn about diverse career paths in ADR, as well as critical content about the future of dispute resolution and how it relates to mental health. Learn from mentors and peers throughout the day.
Discounted prices are available for members who register early.
More details on the three sessions will be announced soon.
Keynote: Susan E. Opler, Toronto Ombudsman

She practised litigation as an associate and later as a partner at McCarthy Tétrault and worked for a year as an Assistant Crown Attorney while on leave from the firm.

She sat on the Board of Directors of the University of Toronto Schools and as a member of the Research Ethics Board of The Hospital for Sick Children.
