STEP Canada's 21st National Conference  |  June 6-7, 2019  |  Toronto

The STEP Canada national program committee is pleased to release the preliminary program for this highly anticipated event. Join us June 6-7 in Toronto for unsurpassed networking and continuing education opportunities.


2019 will mark STEP Canada’s 21st National Conference, featuring a number of sought-after speakers who will discuss the latest trends and developments in wealth management. We are anticipating another record-breaking year as our Program Committee strategically planned two unique days filled with invaluable, practical, and timely discussions and events. The STEP Canada national conference has established itself as a must-attend event for Canadian and international practitioners as well as partnering sponsors.

In addition to talks by thought-provoking speakers from around the globe; we offer attendees the exclusive and robust STEP Canada native conference app, which delivers all available presentations and papers; pre-loaded USBs; breakfasts, lunches, and health breaks; a traditional conference binder of materials (priced separately); an attractive conference bag; and access to many industry-related organizations whose services are showcased in the exhibit hall.

Parallel streams allow participants to select sessions that feature the latest developments in trusts and estates, as well as practical commentary from our panels of experts. Plenary and concurrent sessions provide practitioners from all disciplines with information that will greatly enhance the value of their practices.



From 2018 attendees:

“I was very impressed . . . [O]verall one of the best tax conferences I have attended in my career.”

“[The conference] shoots the lights out!”

“This is by far the best, most informative industry conference (when comparing content) in Canada.”



STEP Canada Conference App 2019

This indispensable app features detailed schedules, speaker and sponsor lists, alert notifications, an online question feature, session notes, downloadable conference materials, surveys, interactive maps, and social and contact-sharing information. (Please note that traditional paper binders are priced separately.)



Printed Conference Materials in Binders

Printed materials are available at the nominal charge of $75 + HST for registrants who order a binder before the conference begins. STEP Canada’s aim is to create a more sustainable event by reducing printed materials.



Continuing Professional Development: Substantive & Professionalism

The 2019 STEP Canada full conference program is designed to meet the continuing education requirements of provincial law societies, accounting institutes, and other professional associations by offering a minimum of 10.5 hours of substantive continuing professional development (CPD). Accreditation for both substantive and where applicable professionalism is currently pending with regulating bodies.

The evening features dinner in the magnificent Concert Hall, accompanied by the Milestones Trio’s easy-listening jazz. The Arcadian Court is a 20-25 minute walk from the InterContinental Toronto Centre Hotel.
