2020 Ontario ISW Community of Practice

Join ISW Facilitators from across the province to share, learn, and connect about all things ISW.

CPI is thrilled to be hosting the Ontario ISW Community of Practice this year! This Community of Practice has been designed to help better connect our provincial ISW colleagues and discuss ISW-related matters within the Ontario context. The aim of this gathering is to exchange updates on ISW activities and to share resources through special topic sessions led by community members.

Parking is available on campus for visitors and guests to campus. We recommend parking in Lot D which can be accessed for a daily rate of $12 (rather than an hourly metered rate), and is about a 5-minute walk to Schmon Tower where we will be gathering in the morning. Both Lot D and Schmon Tower are marked on the map below.

Staying in Niagara

While the Community of Practice meeting may only be one day, you may wish to extend your stay in the Niagara Region. For places to stay, things to do, and sights to see, visit Tourism Niagara Canada.
