2025 EKO Spring Symposium? See you in Toronto! 

We’re doing it all again April 15 – 17, 2025 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto

Empowered Kids Ontario’s in-person conference returned with the 2023 Spring Symposium. We’re already looking forward to what’s next: the 2025 EKO Spring Symposium.

Every two years EKO hosts this pinnacle event for the child development sector and the largest gathering of professionals and stakeholders from Ontario and across Canada.

What do I need to know about the 2025 EKO Spring Symposium?

Next year’s event offers a personalized experience designed to elevate professional practice, forge connections, build new and collaborative relationships, and inspire with dynamic ideas. We’ll feature sessions that change your perspective and provoke new thinking, as well as Q&As, roundtables, poster presentations and the popular Schmooza Palooza where you’ll grow you network meeting colleagues from around our province and across Canada.

You’ll be able to make the most of our networking spaces, learn from new mentors, celebrate sector changemakers, and enjoy Spring in the heart of downtown Toronto.
