Participate as a speaker at the next annual Canadian Association for Supported Employment Conference

June 5-7, 2012
Delta Winnipeg Hotel
Winnipeg, MB

From the CASE Website:

This year’s conference, Tipping the Scales, gives us the opportunity to continue exploring transitions in employment support approaches on a national scale. Some provinces are approaching their five-year evaluation of funding supports since the devolution of federal funding, where other provinces are just embarking on their devolved systems. This conference gives us all the chance to engage in meaningful dialogue, experience valuable exchanges of learning, provide mentoring, and collectively develop gateways to establishing national best practices.

We highly value the collective wisdom of our national partners and members. The annual CASE conference provides us an amazing platform to share our experiences, our learning, and to start mobilizing in a unified manner. We have the opportunity to influence all levels of government, agencies, and communities in an effort to achieve the best possible outcome: connecting people experiencing barriers to work with meaningful and sustainable employment.

On behalf of the CASE board, we look forward to seeing you in Winnipeg on June, 2012!

Tamara Shaw,

CASE President
