Registration Now Open: Prairie Child Welfare Consortium Conference 2024 – Pathways to Parity 

May 23, 2024 — 

The 12th biennial Prairie Child Welfare Consortium (PCWC) Conference is set to convene in Winnipeg, Manitoba, from June 12th to 14th, 2024. With the theme “Pathways to Parity: Transformative Strategies in Child Welfare,” the conference underscores the commitment to advancing equity, progress, and collaboration in the field of child welfare. 

The goal of the conference is to build capacity, at the different levels of systems that support children, families, and communities in the Prairie Provinces, while ensuring respect for needs for engagement of First Nations and Métis communities in the delivery of child welfare services. 

The conference will be hosted by Michael Redhead Champagne and feature keynote speakers: Clemene Hornbrook, Earl C. Stevenson, Carey Newman and Brittany Mathews. 

Registration for the conference is now open, inviting professionals, scholars, and advocates to join this transformative dialogue. As the PCWC continues its mission to reshape the future of child welfare, participants are urged to seize this opportunity to be part of the conversation and drive meaningful progress forward.
