The CFHS National Animal Welfare Conference is the pre-eminent venue for thought leadership, sharing of ideas, networking and learning. It is Canada’s only animal welfare industry event that represents the entire diversity of animal welfare leaders in Canada. Whether you work with a humane society, SPCA, animal rescue, advocacy group, animal control, conservation, an academic institution or the government – or are just interested in animal welfare, this exciting conference is the place for you! It will arm you with all the inspiration, information, tools and training you need to help build a Humane Canada on behalf of our nation’s animals.
