A note for our physician friends: HPCO no longer seeks Mainpro accreditation for our annual conferences.  The cost in staff time to compile and complete the Mainpro application was disproportionate to the benefit accreditation provided to HPCO. Our focus is to provide the best possible experience for the wide range of conference delegates from all professions and roles within hospice palliative care. 

Approved Lead Presenter Rate: Lead Presenter: $425

This fee is applicable to approved Lead Presenters for this year’s conference. If you are a Lead Presenter, HPCO will send you a special registration code and instructions to complete your conference registration. 

Student (Full-time): Full Conference: $425

A limited number of student spots are available. The student rate is available to full-time students only (student ID required).  Please contact to confirm if you qualify for this rate. If approved, you will receive a special registration code and instructions to complete your conference registration.

Bursary Program

As part of Hospice Palliative Care Ontario’s commitment to working to improve inclusion and eliminate barriers for Black and Indigenous people working in hospice palliative care, we offer a number of bursaries for this conference. Applications are encouraged from Nurses, Social Workers, Social Services Workers, or Personal Support Workers working in, or with an interest in hospice palliative care in Ontario.  Bursary applications closed on May 1, 2023.
