What’s New

  • Families in Canada Conference 2019 (coming in March 2019)

In the last week of March 2019, the Vanier Institute will host a national, pan-Canadian conference with simultaneous satellite regional conferences co-hosted by university partners across Canada.

This unique and inclusive series of events will bring together diverse leaders from across the country who study, serve and support families for two days of knowledge-sharing and catalytic conversation.

With engaging presentations, panel discussions, workshops and performances, delegates will explore modern families and family life, share experiences, highlight leading and emerging policies and practices, and learn from the stories behind the statistics.

Registration opens in September.
