The BCACCS 2014 Conference is now full. Thank you for your interest but unfortunately we are unable to accommodate any further delegates. We hope to see you next year!

 

BCACCS 17th Annual Provincial Training Conference: Nov 7-9, 2014

Taking place at Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier (138 Victory Ship Way, North Vancouver, BC) and the Lonsdale Quay Hotel (123 Carrie Cates Ct, North Vancouver, BC).

 

The 2014 conference theme is Hand in Hand: Health and Wellness for All with Quality Care

 

At BCACCS, a primary focus of our training and professional development events is to translate our culturally rich traditions into effective early childhood development (ECD) programs and services. We believe that community involvement, leadership, and support are central to the healthy, holistic development of Aboriginal children. We seek to promote the capacity of ECD professionals to design and deliver programs and services that are immersed in our cultures and communities.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about Aboriginal child mental health and wellness from two distinguished speakers; Charlotte Waddell and Dr. Rod McCormick.
