All Tickets include: the Reception on May 14th at the City Hall, and Access to the Symposium on May 15th.

Overview:

Welcome to Building Empathy Conquering Apathy (BECA) 2018, convened by Canadians for a Civil Society.

This is our third annual gathering to explore and strengthen common cause and common ground to bolster human dignity and shared values within our communities.

In 2018 we are Building Empathy and Conquering Apathy in addressing the mental health and emotional well-being of some of the most vulnerable among us: refugees, seniors, indigenous Canadians – adolescents and youth.

Goals of Symposium:

  • To learn from those affected by mental health issues, the caregivers, and the professionals

  • To facilitate dialogue, networking and understanding of the intersections between the impact of mental health issues
  • To encourage innovation and collaboration by facilitating the flow of information between NGOs, decision-makers, and volunteers
  • To raise awareness of public and build community capacity to respond to better respond to mental health issues and their impact
  • To build momentum for deeper collaboration for the current and the future generations by creating awareness and educating communities by openly discussing and accepting mental illness as a significant issue in our province and our country
