2019 Conference & Presentations

THANK YOU for making our seventh conference the biggest one yet!

The annual sector gathering attracted over 450 people, and offered 42 sessions over 7 streams, facilitated by 142 speakers.

David Granirer kicked things off at the Opening Reception on Sunday night with an uplifting keynote bringing laughs and teaching us how to reduce stress. In the opening plenary on Monday morning, Tanya Talaga shared powerful stories from Indigenous communities across Canada and explored ways society can be more inclusive and equitable. And Dr. Brian Goldman closed the Conference by teaching us the difference between kindness and empathy.
