Ontario’s largest annual conference for planning professionals will take place, but how it looks and how it feels will change. Be ready to be wowed!
OPPI20 will explore the topics of housing, demographics, planning and planners (that’s you) through four keynote presentations, 50+ breakout sessions over four days - September 23 & 30, October 7 & 14, OPPI’s Annual General Meeting and multiple networking events.  Plus, what would a conference be without a few surprises?

Because we’re not meeting in person for OPPI20, we’re passing the savings on to you through our registration options and the ability to watch recorded sessions for up to 90 days after the conference!  
OPPI20 will teach you, inspire you, and delight you!

Because we know as planners you're always learning, always guiding, always inspiring - AlwaysON.



In his talk at OPPI20, David Wachsmuth, Canada Research Chair in Urban Governance at McGill University, will explore what professional planners need to know about short-term rentals. This includes their rise in Ontario and the world, their impacts on existing housing stocks, why some communities are fighting back, and how planners can contribute to regulating this industry in the public interest. David’s talk will also include a first look at a forensic analysis of thousands of short-term rental hosts who have put their properties back on the long-term rental market during the COVID-19 pandemic.
