The Ontario Public Health Convention (TOPHC) is hosted jointly by the Ontario Public Health Association (OPHA), the Association of Local Public Health Agencies (alPHa) and Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion (OAHPP).
The Convention is a three-day event; the inaugural Convention took place at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto, Ontario from April 5–8, 2011.
TOPHC aims to advance public health in Ontario by increasing the knowledge and
skills in the workforce and invites front-line public health professionals, such as
health promoters, epidemiologists, public health nurses, physicians, researchers,
policy-makers and other groups to register. TOPHC includes an exciting mix of
both research presentations that share new knowledge and educational workshops
that build and refine practical skills.

Modelled after the Journées Annuelles de Santé Publique (JASP) conference,
TOPHC has a strong focus on training and skills development, while also
providing opportunities for collaboration, networking, and the sharing of the latest
scientific knowledge and best practices.
