Aaniin – Boozhoo – Kwey Kwey – Shekon – Tansi – Hello,
Native Child and Family Services of Toronto (NCFST) and the Association of Native Child and Family Services Agencies of Ontario (ANCFSAO) are busy preparing for the upcoming 2022 Indigenous Child and Family Well-Being Conference from November 8th to 10th, 2022.
Our Keynote Speakers are announced – stay tuned for a full list of workshops to be released shortly!
Cindy Blackstock, Norma Jacobs, Duke Peltier, Sam Gilchrist and Meagan Lindley with the ANCFSAO Youth Panel will be joining our conference as keynote speakers, each speaking on topics that will ground and inform our work in the Indigenous Child and Family Well Being sector.
In addition to these powerful keynotes, the conference will feature 32 different workshops covering topics such as “Building Positive Relationships with First Nations”, “Indigenous Approaches to Alternative Dispute Resolution”, “Traditional Healer Programs”, “Indigenous Child and Family Wellbeing Assessment Tools”, and many more. The workshops have been carefully chosen to be informative, relevant, and culturally grounded. Conference participants will also have the opportunity to get outside the classroom and join on the land programming with two daily hikes.
Rounding out the conference are daily Sunrise Ceremony, nightly socials, and a Full Moon ceremony on Monday, November 8.
In the meantime, early bird pricing has been extended to October 7, which means TODAY is your LAST DAY to take advantage of our special room rate!
