Workshops & Events


The Ontario AIDS Network (OAN) offers the Skills Development Program which is an important resource for professional development in the HIV/AIDS sector. The program is intended for OAN member agencies and affiliates (where applicable).

In addition to workshops, topic specific webinars may also be provided.

The purpose of the program is to build capacity for the day-to-day running of AIDS Service Organizations and to support staff to better serve people infected, affected and at risk of HIV infection. By doing so, we will produce more productive, self-sufficient, professional, cohesive AIDS Service Organizations and Member Groups throughout Ontario.

Focus will also be on strengthening networks and developing resources and tools to promote best practices. These skills and resources will allow for more effective direct services to clients and more effective management and Boards of Directors.

The Skills Development Program is financially supported in part by the AIDS Bureau Funding Program, Provincial Programs Branch, Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care in Ontario.


Please note that, if necessary, these dates may change. If that happens, notice will be sent out to the membership. Unless otherwise notified, these workshops/meetings will take place at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Toronto.

Online registration will be available for each workshop closer to the workshop date.
