The ABLE Financial Empowerment Conference is a national biannual conference for all stakeholders interested in fostering financial empowerment for people who live on low incomes. On May 8th and 9th, 2018, 300+ participants from across Canada will gather for two days where they will  hear  from leading experts from the financial empowerment field. Participants will engage in interactive workshops, learning sessions, panel discussions and networking opportunities.
