05/11/2021 Virtual Event Building Community Connections: A National Health Symposium

Friday, November 5, 2021

This is an online event.

The future of health is in communities. As we look for new ways to provide care to a diverse and aging population, accessing health and social supports within community is taking on greater priority. Innovative programs that improve connections at the individual, community and system levels are playing a vital role in achieving the best possible health outcomes for all Canadians. These programs help identify areas of concern within the broad determinants of health and assist individuals in navigating a complex system for community-based resources and supports.

On November 5th, the Canadian Red Cross invites you to join us for an exclusive health symposium for our stakeholders. We want to thank Aviva Canada as Founding Community Health and Wellness Partner for its generous support to our Community Connector project and for sponsoring this event. What to expect:

  • Learn about efforts led by key health system stakeholders to address social determinants of health in their communities.
  • Be inspired by innovations in community health programming and social prescribing.
  • Reflect on emerging needs as we move into recovery phases of COVID-19
  • Build connections and become part of the conversation!

Sunday, May 15 to Thursday May 19, 2021

We are particularly pleased to invite you to participate in the 24th World Conference on Health Promotion. This major event of the International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE) is held every three years and will take place from May 15 to 19, 2022 in Montréal, Quebec.

The School of Public Health of the Université de Montréal (ESPUM), which has hosted the IUHPE International Secretariat since 2017, is joining forces with the IUHPE to develop the 24th World Conference on the theme: Promoting policies for health, well-being and equity. The Conference is organized by the School of Public Health of the Université de Montréal in collaboration with the Québec National Institute of Public Health, the Montréal Regional Directorate of Public Health as part of the “Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux du Centre-Sud-de-l’Île-de-Montréal”, the Université de Montréal Hospital Centre, and the “Centre hospitalier universitaire Sainte-Justine”.

The IUHPE is the only NGO with a global scope that brings together decision makers, practitioners and researchers in the field of health promotion.  Its mission lies in moving forward effective health promotion and the development and implementation of healthy public policy. Its purpose is to provide leadership and advocacy in facilitating the development and implementation of health promotion knowledge and strategies.  It recognizes the need to strengthen the development of health promotion systems and ensure effective governance to improve health promotion action around the world and across sectors.

The 24th IUHPE World Conference on Health Promotion will provide a unique opportunity to take stock of strategies and actions that can be taken to align policies with health, well-being and equity objectives  (e.g. Health in All Policies), and to reinvigorate all sectors of society and all regions of the world concerned with supporting health and well-being. This will be an opportunity for researchers, health practitioners and decision makers and other sectors critical to population health to exchange knowledge and share experiences on progress and challenges in better aligning policies for the promotion of population health equity and well-being.
