The Fire Fighters’ Association of Ontario has a proud tradition of promoting training and fire service information through our annual FFAO Convention, held the first weekend in August each year, hosted by different Fire Departments across the province.

We strive to ensure it is a weekend of specialized training but also a great opportunity to gather together and have fun too. Here’s what you can expect:

  • professional course instruction in a variety of skills to enhance your individual fire training
  • family-friendly fun so you can camp and enjoy time with your family and friends
  • the always competitive Firefighter Games – a great tradition
  • the FFAO Annual General Meeting – find out what the association is doing for you
  • a Memorial Service that brings us all together to honour our own
  • social events to ensure everyone has a good time

Be where the action is! Please plan to join us from July 30 to August 3rd, for a full line-up of events, training opportunities and family fun too. It’s our biggest event of the year. Join us!
