CHF BC commits to expose our membership to emerging issues and innovative ideas, and pursue ongoing learning. To this end, we are reaching out to the wider housing, social and non-profit community sector with an invitation to submit education conference workshop proposals [PDF].

Successful applicants will be notified if the workshop proposal will be considered for a future conference by December 15, 2023. Since each conference is planned around a specific theme, workshops may be selected but not scheduled immediately.
We are working to foster a workshop environment that is inclusive and diverse and where people can be themselves. Every perspective and lived experience are valued.
Not sure your workshop meets our requirements? Let us decide! Research shows that members of members of often under-represented groups tend to not apply when they think they may not meet every qualification. In fact, they often do! We are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive education program and strongly encourage you to submit a proposal.
If you have any questions please contact CHF BC Education Director, Ed Dagsaan.
