A. Date/Time/Location:

B. Travel and Accommodations:

The OSA will provide a "Travel and Accommodation Grant" to each District Association to assist with the travel and accommodation costs for one delegate as outlined below.


The travel grant will be based on travel for one vehicle only per District Association at a rate of 45 cents per kilometre for the travel to and from the OSA's AGM, in Toronto. In the event that the District Delegate elects to drive from what is classified as an acceptable air travel distance (ie. Thunder Bay, Timmins or Sault Ste. Marie), the lower of the fare costs (economy air fare versus $0.45/km) will be applied.

The OSA is responsible for booking all air travel funded, by the OSA. Any air travel booked by the District Association or Delegate will not be funded by the OSA. All requests for air travel must be submitted in writing to Gerry Jennings no later than Friday, April 10, 2015.


The OSA will fund one Delegate for two nights (or two Delegates for one night each). District Associations are required to make their own hotel arrangements directly with the Holiday Inn Toronto – International Airport for their delegates. The OSA rate for the weekend at the hotel is $105 per night plus taxes and this rate will be valid until April 15, 2015.
