Weekend Course Information
The weekend format is offered to make courses more accessible to people who are outside Toronto. In each weekend session, approximately half of participants are from outside the Greater Toronto Area. The weekend model can be an intense experience. Please consider what you may need for self-care over the weekend, including time for rest and reflection.
