Living and Thriving with a Disability Conferences

Thriving with a Disability Conferences

Living and Thriving with a Disability Conferences connect c​onsumers with health professionals and services in the their community.
The conference has been offered as a part of Peer Support Services, a Program of March of Dimes Canada, since 2009 and continues to grow. We have organised approximately 20 to 25 different conferences, in conjunction with several different partners, at various locations across Canada.

Who should attend?
Individuals living with a disability or Acquired Brain Injury, allied health professionals, service providers, caregivers /partners, and family members.
The conferences not only emphasizes the services that are readily available in the community, it also highlights the potential gaps and enables committee organisations to potentially develop solutions to address the growing need for community care. Follow up conferences have been offered in several locations as a result of the demand for additional services or topics. 

The Peer Support Department at March of Dimes Canada has organising conferences at the following locations: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Calgary, Alberta, Vancouver and Fraser Valley in British Columbia, and Kingston, Windsor, Sarnia and Toronto in Ontario.
