OPDI Peer Support provincial conference: Save the date and call for proposals

Submit your proposal for the Ontario Peer Development Initiative conference. All are welcome to submit a proposal, including those who will be first-time attendees.

Conference date: Monday, October 5 & Tuesday, October 6, 2020
Location: Toronto
Proposal deadline: April 15, 2020

The conference is typically attended by people from across the province of Ontario, with a range of relations to peer support (peer volunteers, peer support workers, people exploring the area of peer work, peer supervisors/managers, peer researchers, people collaborating with peers, allied health professionals supporting peer work, government representatives). Some attendees are relatively new to the area of peer support, others have been working in the community for a long time and are looking to challenge themselves with new ideas. We thus seek proposals that are relevant to a wide audience, as well as more specialized participant groups.

Note: This year OPDI is adding a "peer playground" session that welcomes anyone with a specific interest or question related to peer work to call a small group of conference attendees together for networking and conversation on that theme (see further info below). This is a great way to seek out colleagues or gather some feedback!
