Requesting public education from the Commission

Page content

The Commission has a number of staff available to speak at a public event or to provide educational sessions within the Province of Ontario. We normally request about six weeks advance notice to ensure that someone will be available to speak to your group. We will do our best to fulfill your request within two weeks of receiving it; however we are not able to accept all invitations.

While speeches may vary in length, workshops are generally around 90 minutes in length and we usually request a minimum of 25 people attending.

The Request for Public Education Form can be either completed online or you can print it (PDF Document, 30kb) and mail it to:
