Edmonton, Alberta

“Addiction: Addressing Diversity”

 Thank you for your interest and keep checking this site for further program information, which will be coming regularly!  Registration is now open!


The vision of the Addiction Day Conference and Networking Fair is to increase public awareness of addiction and mental health problems, and to enhance knowledge, competencies and treatment care. Through a combination of diverse presentations, workshops and networking opportunities, we hope to bring together healthcare professionals from across the care continuum for a day of learning and discussion.

Past conferences have been approved as Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and accredited by the University of Calgary Office of Continuing Medical Education and Professional Development. Participants claimed up to a maximum of 6.5 study credits.  This event (2019) will also be submitted for CME Accreditation.
