Event description

Description

We have made significant strides to address health inequalities in Canada but there is much left to do. Upstream’s third CTG conference, The Next 150, promises to provide the deepest and richest experience so far.


Our focus this year is on Reconciliation and health. As we better understand how social, economic, and environmental factors impact health, there is a growing desire to improve the conditions in which we live as a path to greater wellbeing. Upstream invites you to join us in exploring the best ways to move conversation into action. The event will bring together decision-makers, researchers, health care workers, students, researchers, and other who see the vital connections between Reconciliation, policy and health.



Friday April 6th [7:00 PM - 9:00 PM] – Artist Jordan Raymond and Federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh will be followed by our keynote speaker Tanya Talaga, author of Seven Fallen Feathers. The evening will be ripe with ideas and challenges that will be sure to inspire.


Saturday April 7th [10:00 AM - 5:00 PM] – Jesse Thistle, a strong voice in Indigenous housing, and our keynote speaker, will share the stage with Minister of Indigenous Services Jane Philpott, well-known journalist André Picard, health expert Dr. Marcia Anderson, federal Green Party Shadow Cabinet Member Lorraine Rekmans, and many more. Don't miss this opportunity to connect with Canadians active in promoting better health for all.
