Benefits of Membership

Membership in OASPHE includes an invitation to attend the fall meeting, the annual conference in February at a reduced rate, the spring meeting in May, and an opportunity to network with teachers and leaders in Health and Physical Education in Ontario through the OASPHE listserve and website.  Members will also receive minutes of the OASPHE executive meetings along with information on resources and provincial initiatives as they present themselves.

With the extensive changes in the Health and Physical Education curriculum, we feel it is essential that Boards have representation in our organization in order to help them provide leadership to teachers in their Boards.
