OUR STORY

The Western Canada Addiction Forum (WCAF) was built on introducing addiction therapy/treatment to all healthcare providers and showcase novel clinical practices that promote positive change in your practice for Monday. For over 10 years, WCAF has honored our humble provincial beginnings as we have grown to reach all of Western Canada and beyond.

Our strong foundation consists of open, honest, and inclusive dialogue that fosters innovation in not only treatment methods, but in the lenses we use when engaging with those experiencing substance use disorders. We are advocates for our patients and profession. Our non-partisan approach bridges the artificial divide and works towards our shared goals of supporting healthcare providers and advancing substance use care.

Coming together, building connections, and challenging our differences. The Western Canada Addiction Forum embraces the whole continuum of care and tirelessly works to improve treatment across a lifespan for those who struggle with substance use disorders.
