Satellite Events

In addition to the National Conference being held at the Infinity Convention Centre in Ottawa, our university partners across the country will host 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.

REGISTER TODAY to participate in this unique and exciting event! (Select satellite event location in registration form.)

Further information about the satellite events can be found on the associated university websites (links below).
