The Provincial HSJCC Conference Planning Committee invites you to submit an abstract for presentation at the 2017 Conference 'Walking the Path:  Finding the Way to Wellness' on November 20-22nd, 2017 in Toronto, Ontario.

The HSJCC Network is a dynamic, voluntary collaboration between over 1600 professionals from across the human services and justice sectors.  Together, at the Local, Regional and Provincial levels, they coordinate resources and plan more effectively for people with unique needs who are in conflict with the law.

The Provinical HSJCC Conference is the network's premiere educational event - bringing together more than 400 professionals from across the human services and justice sector to share promising practices, build cross-sector networks and engage in solutions for the people they serve.  Attendees benefit from a richly engrossing program that leaves them better equipped and inspired to meet the needs of Ontarians.
