2016 Summit

April 7-8, 2016
Allstream Centre

The focus of the 2016 Summit was Moving From Policy to Practice Through Collaboration. Acclaimed speakers offered evidence-informed practices, programs and resources that have been shown to work and can make a real difference in the lives of children, youth and their families. A highlight for the 2016 Summit was the first release of the preliminary results of the 2014 Ontario Child Health Study.

Participants had a unique opportunity to network across sectors.
