Umbrella Annual Conference 2022

Due to scheduling changes, there are spots available.

Saturday, November 19, 2022

720 Midland Ave., Scarborough

After 2 years of hiatus due to the recent public health crisis, it’s exciting to finally be able to host this in person conference! Conferences over Zoom are just not the same. For Umbrella, this conference marks a turning point – it feels like we are finally returning back to some sort of normality. We are all part of a community of child care professionals, struggling with similar stresses and challenges. And, as a community, we are stronger. An in-person conference offers unique benefits that come with being together, and gives us that power of community. From conversations in the halls and in the cafeteria over lunch, to meeting new people, there are so many more opportunities to exchange ideas with people when you get together in person.
  1. Over 20 Workshops
  2. Networking Opportunities
  3. Exhibits and Displays
  4. Childcare Resources
  5. Scrumptious Lunch
  6. Door Prizes

Webinar - Transitioning to ONCA

Transitioning to ONCA – Benjamin Miller, Community Legal Education Ontario

Ontario’s Not-for-Profit Corporations Act (ONCA) was proclaimed on October 19, 2021. Nonprofits have 3 years to update their bylaws and letters patent to comply with ONCA. This webinar will walk through what is new in the ONCA, steps nonprofits need to take to transition to the ONCA, and how CLEO’s free resources can help you create ONCA compliant bylaws from scratch or adapt your current bylaws.
This session is for organizations already incorporated under Ontario’s Corporation Act.

Please contact Umbrella at 416-686-9869 or email director@umbrelladaycare.com if you wish to sign up.

There is no charge for this webinar, but we need 20 participants to set it up. Once we have enough interest, we will arrange for a date.
