Our organization hosts a week long annual training session in various locations throughout Ontario. The venue in 2015 was St. Lawrence College. Our entire experience was very positive and we would endorse this venue to other groups. Event staff at the venue were very attentive and assisted with all our needs to ensure the 2015 conference was a success for our membership from across Ontario. Lodging, food and educational facilities were excellent and OAPSO would highly recommend St. Lawrence College as a venue for other large organizations. Communication with the institutions staff was timely and accommodating. The planning and implementation of an event with 150-200 participants can be a challenging undertaking and St. Lawrence College facilities staff made this undertaking easier and smoother than expected.

We found using the St.Lawrence College Residence Facilities to be a GREAT Venue to host our recent Family Reunion. The friendly St. Lawrence College Dorm Management & Staff were very accommodating and supportive to provide us with the services and solutions needed to facilitate our Event. The economical pricing of the Dorm Rooms made it very affordable for many of our Family members to stay extra days, so we could have more Family time together. The 24/7 Front Desk Check-in gave Family Members, traveling from different Canadian cities, the freedom to arrive in at all hours based on their work schedules. A huge advantage was the close proximity of the Dorm Rooms to our Activity Room – the 1st Floor Residence Lounge – making it extremely convenient for Family members to rest between activity sessions; the other big bonus was having the full-size Dorm Room Fridges available to store all the food needed to feed the “multitudes”! The Venue was large enough for us to section off the Room into different areas: Buffet Area, Children’s Play Area with Puppet Theater, Family Photo Shoot Area and our “Family Entertainment Center” for our Karoke DJ and the digital Photo Loop displayed on the large screen TV available in the Lounge. The “upper lounge” area offered additional sitting area. The outside “Patio Area” made it easy for Family members to step out for a breath of fresh air and also provided an “open space area” for parents to blow bubbles with their kids!! We had a FANTASTIC, hugely successful, memorable Family Reunion and the Residence Facility was the perfect venue to accommodate our many activities!!

Year 1 of the Mr Spot Dog Camp was a resounding success thanks to St. Lawrence College Conference Services! Welcoming over twenty guests and 20+ dogs, staff ensured that the week went by without a hitch. A few minor issues on Day 1 were addressed professionally and immediately, ensuring a pleasant stay for all. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Access to the college cafeteria made it easy to provide onsite meals — and choice. And the location across from Lake Ontario Park was a nice bonus!
