1. Create Your Account: Visit our website and fill out the form to create your event leader account & application. After you submit your event, we’ll send you an email confirming that we’ve received your application. Our team will also review & approve your event application.

We strongly recommend adding NEM Ontario (letstalk@nemontario.ca) to your safe sender list to make sure that you receive essential updates about your event. Check out our event leader FAQs to get instructions on how to do this & to read other common questions.

2. Submit Your Event: Once your application is approved, you will get another email asking you to input the details for your event in our Event Leader Hub.

After you submit your event details, our team will review your event one more time & add the event registration URL.

No problem! Simply log in to the Event Leader Hub and make the necessary edits. Please allow 24 hours for these changes to be reflected on the calendar. Clear your cache if immediate visibility is needed (see our FAQ section for how to do this).
