PATHS 40th Anniversary Conference

Reflecting on the Past and Envisioning a Future without Abuse.

October 16-17, 2024

The theme of our conference this year, in addition to being our 40th anniversary, is Reflecting on the Past and Envisioning a Future without Abuse.

See what people had to say about our last conference...
The keynote speakers and plenaries were all VERY on point. Also, I loved the chance to connect with people and just chat. I also am grateful for the reminder that so many people are pouring themselves into this work around the province and throughout the country.
The speakers were engaging -- food excellent -- networking top shelf
My favourite part was meeting a number of the speakers, the other registrants and the informal conversations that occurred as a result of the presentations.
