The OAFC 2022 Trade Show connects vendors with YOU – the buyers and decision makers. It is a virtual hub for chief fire officers to learn about the latest products available, keep the vendors informed about what your needs and wants are, and reconnect with vendors that you may not have seen in awhile due to the pandemic.  


Year after year, the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs (OAFC) Conference and Trade Show has proven that it is the must-attend event for fire and emergency services in Canada!  Exhibiting at the OAFC Trade Show helps you elevate your brand's profile, provides invaluable networking opportunities, obtain important leads, and generate sales to fire departments who use this equipment/services every day.
The OAFC Trade Show is integral to the conference, allowing equipment and service providers to connect with all levels of fire service personnel in Ontario's $1-billion fire and emergency services market.  It continues to be one of the highest rated components of our annual event.  According to a 2019 delegate survey, 95% of responses indicated that next to the educational component, the Trade Show is one of the most important elements of the conference.
The OAFC Trade Show is the largest and most successful gathering of fire service manufacturers and suppliers in Canada, offering trade show attendee’s direct access to your sales team to maximize product exposure and corporate visibility.  Don’t miss your opportunity to exhibit at the premiere marketplace in Canada for fire and emergency services!

Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs Memorial Service

The OAFC Memorial Service is an annual event held to honour the chief officers who have passed away since our last conference. 
Due to COVID-19 and the cancellation of in-person events, we have not held this event since 2019.  As many know, the service is very moving, and involves many dignitaries, fire service peronal, chief officers, volunteers, colour guard, and the families of the deceased. 
The OAFC does not want another year to go by without honouring those who have left us since our event in 2019.  This year, we will honour the chief officers with a short virtual memorial presentation later in the year.  This virtual service will not replace the in-person event.  We will still look at properly recogizing these individuals when we can host in-person events again.
More details to follow.
