HC Link holds a conference every other year. Our next conference will be in 2017.
On November 12 and 13, HC Link’s 2015 conference - Linking for Healthy Communities: Action for Change - brought together over 150 people from a variety of settings to learn and share experiences and ideas for building healthy, sustainable and resilient communities. The two-day event featured an amazing line-up of keynote speakers, panelists, workshop facilitators and story presenters that informed and inspired participants to create Action for Change in their communities.
Linking for Healthy Communities 2015 Conference Highlights offer photos and highlights from all plenary and concurrent sessions, including links to slides and additional information. It also provides ways HC Link can help build upon the connections and momentum started at the conference.

2013 Conference - Linking for Healthy Communities: Collaborating for Change
HC Link's 2013 provincial conference, Linking for Healthy Communities: Collaborating for Change, was held at the Novotel Toronto Centre on November 12 and 13.
This year's conference theme was Creating community change... by engaging our communities, working in partnership and fostering environments and conditions that support health.
This year, 160 people from many diverse sectors, in many diverse roles all came together to learn, network and share - with the common goal of creating healthier communities.
We were pleased to offer simultaneous interpretation of our partially bilingual program, sponsored in part by Éducavie, and a livestreaming option for those who were not able to join in person.
