CREATING RURAL CONNECTIONS 2017: Rural & Remote Homelessness & Housing Conference
Nisku Recreation Centre, 606 - 18 Avenue T9E 7T5, Nisku, Alberta

ARDN is once again hosting the Creating Rural Connections conference. Two years ago, ARDN hosted a successful conference to look at rural and remote homelessness. On Tuesday, April 4, 2017, we are expanding that topic to also delve into affordable housing for Alberta’s rural communities.

This one day rural and remote homelessness and housing conference will feature two keynote presenters, four concurrent session speakers, one workshop and 3 panel sessions. Topics will be rural focussed, and will range from mental health, addictions and homelessness to building capacity in the affordable housing sector. Learn about important topics such as: how to start addressing homelessness in your community, how to start and fund an affordable housing project, and how to work with unique groups, such as seniors, youth, women and Indigenous peoples.

This event will focus on issues surrounding rural homelessness and its relevance to Albertans, and provide opportunities for participants and presenters to learn, network, share expertise, and collaborate on innovative approaches that contribute to the quality of life in rural Alberta.

We believe that exploring and addressing the challenges facing Alberta’s rural homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless is an important step toward developing a better understanding of homelessness in rural Alberta communities and enhancing the quality of life of all rural Albertans.

Registration closes March 31, sign up today!
