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 health care professionals from across the care continuum for a day of learning and discussion. This year’s conference, in collaboration with the Canadian Society of Addiction Medicine, will explore international/national trends in current clinical best practice and research across the addiction spectrum, including opiate use and response. This year’s event is presented in the spirit of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s recommendations.
