Registration Now Open

Registration has now fully opened for interested community members to attend the Summit.
Please note that there are limited seats and registration will be offered at a first come, first served basis.  A wait list will be available to anyone who is not able to register right away.  

In an effort to create equal opportunity for campuses across the province to register (before fully opening registration), an invitation to select 4 delegates per public post-secondary institution was sent to the President, VP Students (or equivalent) and Student Union.

They were invited to coordinate identifying change champions from their campus to take advantage of the "designated delegate" seats who have an interest in or responsibility for mental health and substance use, campus services, teaching and learning, strategic planning and/or student retention.

Additional tickets have now been opened up for anyone who has not already registered as one of the 4 designated delegates. Please read the ticket types very carefully, as there are several options to ensure participants are registered under the relevant category.  

Registration Rates

Regular: $250       PSCA Member: $200       Student: $50

Student Volunteers 

If you are a student who is interested in volunteering at the Summit, please email Sarah Joosse at your earliest convenience. Please note that volunteers receive complimentary registration and we have a limited number of spots available.
