For the first time since 2014, we are setting a modest increase to off set  an increase in conference expenses.

The Gala Dinner on Monday, April 29 at 7:00pm is included in the full three day conference registration fee. Additional tickets may be purchased for $80 each, if you would like to bring a guest to the event, or are not attending the full conference and wish to attend the Gala Dinner.


Delegate substitution is permitted up to and including the first day of the program. A full refund will be given for cancellations received in writing by March 18, 2019.  Any cancellations received after this date will be subject to a 25% administration fee (based on the fee paid). No refunds will be granted after April 5, 2019.  HPCO incurs costs for hotel services, food and beverage, and conference administration even if you don’t attend conference, therefore no-shows will not be refunded under any circumstances.  

Hospice Palliative Care Ontario (HPCO) reserves the right to cancel this program due to insufficient registrations and will be responsible for refunding the registration fees only.
