Welcome to Queen's Park on the Road (QPOR) 2021!

Queen's Park on the Road (QPOR) is an exciting annual event that enables RNAO members to meet their members of provincial parliament (MPP) to discuss key nursing, health and health-care delivery issues. As a signature RNAO event, QPOR is a fantastic opportunity for members to engage their elected representatives and bring their experiences and expertise to the table in an effort to influence healthy public policy changes.  

Our focus this year is on the RN Understaffing Crisis: Impact and Solution

RNAO's passionate and knowledgeable nurse advocates will urge their MPP to address these issues. To get started and learn how to connect with your local MPP, prepare for meetings and read our priority issues fact sheets and political action bulletins, please see the Toolkit section.
