conference.share.squareIf you’re in the Toronto area, come and join CMG Freelance and the Urban Worker Project for a day-long workshop and after party for freelance and contract workers.

It’s happening on Saturday, April 29th from 9:30 to 6 p.m. at Story Arts Centre, Centennial College (951 Carlaw Avenue). It’s an opportunity for freelancers to get together, network and share resources.

There will be lawyers, accountants and other experts leading sessions on the business side of self-employment, including seminars on taxes, setting rates, writing contracts, invoicing, getting paid on time and more.

There will also be some discussion of the big picture issues we’re facing – like access to affordable housing, benefits, childcare and income security and what we can do to make change.

Participants will leave with a package that includes contract templates, resources useful to freelancers and swag from partnering organizations.

Tickets to the daytime event are being offered on a sliding scale: $20, $50 or pay-what-you-can. For details and to register for the event check out this Eventbrite page.

CMG Freelance has a limited number of free tickets to give away for this event. If you’d like one of them, you can email Don Genova at freelance@cmg.ca for a promo code. Priority will be given to CMG Freelance and CWA Canada Associate Members. Please include your CMG Freelance membership number in your email.
