11th Annual Harm Reduction Conference

May 31st (CATIE Pre-Conference Day),
June 1st, & June 2nd, 2011

VENUE: The Coast Edmonton Plaza Hotel

The annual Alberta Harm Reduction Conference is one of a kind in Canada. The goal of the Conference each year is to raise awareness in Alberta about the application of Harm Reduction principles amongst Alberta service providers who deal with populations vulnerable to Hepatitis C and HIV/AIDS, and to build capacities within those vulnerable communities.

Each year the Conference attracts individuals from many different backgrounds such as social workers, physicians, nurses, community outreach workers, addictions workers, and students from various faculties. We are particularly proud of hosting a large number of people who use or used to use drugs, and people involved in the sex trade. Presentations, workshops, and engaging panel discussions are at the center of each Conference, providing registrants with the most current and captivating information within the world of Harm Reduction.

This year, the 11th Annual Harm Reduction Conference is being held in Edmonton, Alberta at the Coast Edmonton Plaza Hotel. This event will continue to lead some of the most progressive harm reduction education and skill transfer opportunities in the country. The Conference will be held over a day and a half day and organizers are expecting approximately 300 to 350 registrants from Alberta and beyond.

The theme for the 2011 conference is Courage, Evidence, Compassion. Throughout the past eleven years, Alberta service providers have handed the baton of hosting the conference each year in different locations throughout the province. Since 2000, the Alberta Harm Reduction Conference has been a one of a kind event in Canada. Each year, agencies, programs, individuals, groups, community members, and advocates throughout the world have joined together for this special conference and all participants leave with a new set of skills, knowledge and resources to bring home and share.
