Flourishing Children and Youth Forum

The CFYS and the CRD-Community Health Network co-hosted the Flourishing Children and Youth Forum in December 2019. The free, one-day community research forum brought leaders from local community organizations, health authorities, school districts, non-profit organizations, and municipal and provincial governments together to discuss the health and well-being of children and youth. Dr. Bonnie Leadbeater, Research Fellow at the Centre for Youth and Society and Psychology Professor at the University of Victoria, made a special keynote address. The forum allowed leaders to work together to test regional indicators, identify data groups and explore how data can influence policy and practice.
