FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Can I volunteer my services and time at the Gathering in exchange for a waived or reduced registration fee?

A: Unfortunately, no. We have received many requests regarding this and, although we welcome the interest, we already have a vibrant and capable volunteer committee that consists of graduate students/affiliated members of the Transformative Learning Centre and University of Toronto. These students have helped plan for this Gathering from its early conception and are also familiar with the University services and community. This ‘home team’ will ensure a knowledable and responsive contribution to the event that should make all registrants feel at home, too.


Q: Are you still looking for Animators?

A: Not at this time. We are, however, open to suggestions for our  Circles. You may email suggestions to todd.will@utoronto.ca


Q: When will we find out about the exact location of the Gathering?

A: The Gathering is being held at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, 252 Bloor St. West in Toronto. You will receive an email – whatever email you had listed in your registration information – closer to the Gathering date which will confirm these details.


Q: How do I know you’ve received my registration?

We try to cash cheques every two weeks or so, so please be patient when balancing your chequebook.
