The Lakeland Centre for FASD will be hosting its second annual virtual FASD Conference. This conference will be a 2-day virtual event for October 5 & 6, 2021. The FASD Conference Committee has chosen to continue with the theme of Justice which will be our focus again this year. This multi-disciplinary conference will focus on how people with FASD interact with the justice system and what some of the solutions are to build our collective knowledge. This event will connect new research and innovative practices to community and frontline services. This will include meaningful discussion on the latest practices, research and ideas over the course of two days. Participants can expect to increase their knowledge on how individuals with FASD become engaged in the justice system. Learn about best and promising practices in reducing the number of individuals with FASD from being involved in the justice system. Increase understanding and awareness of the impact of FASD on the lives of individuals and caregivers. Attendees will be able to network and share information with participants from many disciplines and backgrounds. This conference is for professionals and stakeholders that are part of the Health, Social Service, Justice, Research and Government Agencies.
