  • What is Ontario Jack Summit?
    As Canada’s most populated and diverse province, mental health discussions can look very different in Ontario than they do in the rest of the country. Ontario itself is a mosaic of different communities – whether rural, urban or anything in-between. The Ontario summit is a chance for ALL youth from the entire province to come together and build the skills they need to address mental health in their communities. 
  • When and where is Ontario Jack Summit?

    Ontario Jack Summit took place on Friday, February 25th, 2022 and Saturday, February 26th. 2022.

  • Will it cost me anything to attend?

    No. Thanks to our generous sponsors and donors, the summit is free for all delegates. 

  • Who can apply to be a delegate and how are they chosen?

    All high school and postsecondary-aged young people (15-24) from across Ontario are eligible. All delegates will be selected based on their application’s quality and their commitment to mental health advocacy. We are committed to diversity in our programming and will work to ensure a broad range of attendees.

  • How do I go about booking my travel and accommodation?
    Don’t worry, leave it to us! We will be working with local partners to secure everything on our end, including flights, local travel, hotel accommodation and more. Keep an eye on your email in the coming months regarding these details and more.
  • Do I need to be vaccinated to attend?
    On October 30th, 2021, the Federal Government now requires all domestic travellers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to travel. This means, if you are travelling to attend a regional Jack Summit (including via train, or bus service), you must: be fully vaccinated with two doses of the following accepted vaccines; be ready at any point in your journey to show your official proof of vaccination; have received your second dose at least 14 full days prior to the day you travel; have no signs or symptoms of COVID-19; and wear a mask.

    If you are a resident of the host city, and will not be travelling to attend your regional Jack Summit, we will continue to monitor and update any changes to hotel and venue requirements. Note: Many venues and hotels do require either proof of valid vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 molecular test within 48 hours of the event day.

    If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to ontariosummit@jack.org.
