University of Manitoba Satellite Event

Viscount Gort Hotel
1670 Portage Avenue
Winnipeg, MB  R3J 0C9

On March 27 and 28, 2019, the University of Manitoba will be hosting a satellite event for the Families in Canada Conference 2019!

In addition to the National Conference being held at the Infinity Convention Centre in Ottawa, our university partners across the country will also be hosting satellite events. This pan-Canadian approach extends the reach of the Families in Canada Conference 2019: panel discussions from the National Conference will be livestreamed to the satellite events, which will also provide local programming on-site that focuses on topics of interest to their specific region and/or communities.

Bringing together representatives of government, research and the not-for-profit and private sectors, as well as individuals with lived experience, the Winnipeg conference will focus on the theme of poverty and social inclusion for families in Manitoba. This event will provide opportunities for dialogue and foster continued collaboration among delegates.
