Arrival at the Convention

The convention will take place at the Toronto Congress Centre, 650 Dixon Rd, Etobicoke, ON M9W 1J1.

Registration/Check-In will be taking place outside of Hall D, and the plenaries will be in Hall B and C. To see a map and where best to park, click here. There will be PAFE volunteers and signage to help you upon arrival.

  2. On Friday (1pm to 9pm) or Saturday morning (starting at 7am), you must appear in person at the convention site – the Toronto Congress Centre –and must provide proper photo identification and proof of address and do an ON-SITE CHECK-IN.
  3. Once you have checked-in, you will be given a delegate badge/credential. Your badge will allow you to attend all the convention activities and to vote for the policies, constitutional amendments, and the party’s executive.

Best Time for On-Site Check-In?
Friday November 16: 1pm to 9pm
Saturday November 17: 7am to 8am (complimentary breakfast is served at 7 am)

As far as PAFE is concerned, the most important part of this convention is the Saturday morning Policy Plenary & Voting session. This is where delegates will get to vote on pro-family policy resolutions. 

Policy voting will start at 8:15 am, and you will not be allowed into the room until you have both paid the fee and completed the ON-SITE CHECK-IN. 

Please either show up at the Toronto Congress Centre on Friday and check-in then, or else arrive at 7am on Saturday to complete the ON-SITE CHECK-IN ** BEFORE ** the 8:15 policy session starts. Ideally, you should be in your seat at 8 am when the convention officially starts. This is the single most important thing you need to know about the entire weekend! 

NO MATTER WHAT, plan to be in the Plenary Hall from 8:15am to 10:30am to vote on the policy resolutions.
