Ascend Canada Annual Conference

September 20th – 22nd, 2022

Building an Inclusive Tomorrow

Get ready for the Ascend Canada Annual Conference!

Celebrating our theme this year – United We Move Forward – we are bringing together our signature mix of leaders to bring insights on a variety of topics ranging from lessons from the various current events, diversity and inclusion, leadership, and more. We’ll also have exclusive networking opportunities throughout the three-day conference.

For a third year, we will be presenting the conference in a virtual format given there’s still such uncertainty surrounding large public events.
