On Saturday, November 19 and Sunday, November 20, the Ontario Health Coalition will hold an assembly and conference at the Sheraton Hotel in Toronto to define the future of health-care delivery in Ontario.

On Saturday, the Action Assembly will feature best selling authour and journalist Linda McQuaig, economist Hugh McKenzie and economist Armine Yalnizyan. The Assembly runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“We will review the economic context after the Ontario election, look ahead at the challenges and opportunities, hear reports from local health coalitions from across Ontario, and set the strategy to be a leading voice in the fight ahead,” says the Ontario Health Coalition.

The conference runs on Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and features Taylor Chelsea from Occupy Toronto, Maureen O’Reilly from the Toronto Public Library Workers union, Diane Dowling from the National Farmers Union, Winnie Ng, Sam Gindin Chair in Social Justice and Democracy at Ryerson University and Hugh Armstrong, a member of the Council on Aging (Ottawa) and Carleton University.

“We’ll look at examples of successful organizing for social change — what are the lessons from some high profile/winning campaigns,” says the Ontario Health Coalition.

Town hall-style discussion will allow participants an opportunity to share their experiences and ask questions.
