The Canadian Council on Social Development (CCSD) invites you to the first Canadian Social Forum, which will take place in Calgary, May 19-22, 2009.
We're bringing together community leaders from social development, public health, environment, community safety and recreation. The Forum targets poverty – both urban and rural. Workshops by aboriginal presenters doing innovative work across the country will play a critical role.
This Forum will be the place to witness, experience and be part of the profound change that happens when we all move beyond our comfort zones and work together on a common issue.
Be part of it. Join us in Calgary in May.
- 27 Canadians from across the country sent a simple message to the more than 600 Forum participants.
