Who should attend?

Anyone who works in Nokiiwin communities and is affected by the substance use crisis is encouraged to attend. We are also actively recruiting elders, language speakers, youth, and people with lived experience.


What will happen there?

Here's a draft agenda! This won't be the kind of conference where you listen to a series of presentations. We are going to be collaborating to dream what healthier communities can look like and how we can get there. Come ready to share and contribute.
