The Information and Resource Conference is a FREE conference for families of children with disabilities, the professionals who work with them, and community members.

Workshops will be presented in English, with interpretation for those workshops where it was requested.


Online registration for the Information and Resource Conference (IRC) is now closed.

Drop-ins are welcome for any workshop with space available. If you still need to register, you can do so in person at the conference on Saturday.

Our keynote will be virtual this year. Join us in the Auditorium or click here at 9:30am on Saturday to join in from home. 

To learn more about our Keynote Speaker, Lunchtime Speaker or some of our Workshop Presenters, please see the Speakers page.

**Dress in layers to stay warm, the school has a large outdoor atrium and the gym can be chilly as well.

Everything at IRC is free to attendees!

  • 18 Workshops!

  • Exhibitor Hall with over 50 exhibitors!

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer childcare at IRC this year.

Children are welcome to attend IRC with their families this year.  We will have activity packs for kids available in the workshop sessions and ask that you step out with your child if they become disruptive.

To help support families who may need to bring their children to IRC, we will provide a sensory break room that families are welcome to visit with their child.

Children who are GGRC clients with 1:1 support needs may be able to access respite hours through GGRC, please check with your GGRC social worker if you need to authorize respite hours to cover IRC attendance.
