Every autumn, we bring in our boats and docks as we prepare for a Ontario winter. It’s also a time where we get to come together as a rowing community at the annual ROWONTARIO Conference & AGM. We are officially announcing our Conference & AGM which will take place on November 26, 2016 in Toronto, Ontario at the International Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre – Toronto Airport. This year, we are changing this up a bit by moving our Annual General Meeting to Saturday morning at 9am.

As with previous years, we will be offering reimbursement to the voting club representative who attends the AGM. This individual will be eligible for reimbursement of a Friday night hotel room at the International Plaza and 20% of their conference ticket. Reimbursement forms will be made available at the AGM. If you will be designating a voter by proxy, please complete this form and send it to

ROWONTARIO is also welcoming all conference attendees to join us for a ROWONTARIO Social after this year’s Keynote.This is a great opportunity to touch base with old friends, make new connections, and to see what other clubs have been doing and will be doing at the Club Corner.

All clubs are invited to share at the Club Corner. If interested, please email for more details.
