Tech Support

If you are experiencing issues accessing a virtual activity you registered for, please read the guidelines below.

 

If you are 'locked out' of Eventbrite, you will need to reset your Eventbrite password. Visit this page to do so.

If the page is saying the content you are trying to view is 'locked content', this means you are not signed into the correct Eventbrite account or are accessing the online event page from an unconfirmed source. Only those who have registered for our workshops will be able to login and see their link. You must sign into the correct account if you've used an account, or click the button in Skills Ontario's reminder emails/initial confirmation email. That email looks like the screenshot below. You will need to press the orange button.



If you cannot find your Google Meets link, please check your email folders (inbox, junk, other folders) for an email from Eventbrite. If you have the email and your Eventbrite login info, you should be able to join us. The email looks like the screenshot below. We advise you to use the search function for some keywords, as it'll help narrow it down. 

 

 

If you are having any technical issues that are not listed above, please contact the Camp Manager by email (mlinklater@skillsontario.com).
