Eastern Jack Summit FAQ

  • What is Eastern Jack Summit?

    The Eastern Jack Summit is a reimagining of our previous Atlantic Summit, which was started by a group of passionate mental health advocates in Nova Scotia, and became an official Regional Summit in 2020. Although our summit is going through a name change and redirection this year, the essence of the Eastern Jack Summit remains the same – connecting youth mental health advocates from New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. This Summit will be a space to learn from one another and other mental health leaders and change-makers, build community and resources and collaborate on ways to create meaningful change in communities across Eastern Canada.
