Atlantic Summit - November 5 & 6, 2021

*APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR ATLANTIC JACK SUMMIT 2021 – FORM BELOW.*

What is Atlantic Summit?

Jack.org is proud to announce the third annual Atlantic Jack Summit, which brings together the next generation of mental health leaders and advocates from New Brunswick, NewFoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island to discuss the most pressing mental health issues you face in the Atlantic Region.

Given the ongoing public health crisis, and risks that interprovincial and regional travel continues to pose, Jack.org will be delivering all Fall term regional Jack Summits offerings virtually. There may, however, still be opportunity for in-person elements at Atlantic Summit, and we will continue to monitor the provincial and federal reopening plans to make these decisions. We will be updating all Summit attendees if we are able to offer in-person or hybrid experiences, so please keep an eye out for that!

At the Atlantic Summit, delegates can expect to participate in workshops, engage with keynote speakers and other thought leaders, and work with fellow advocates from across the region to foster understanding, connection, and community. The day will be spent sharing lived expertise and collaborating on goals and ideas, with the ultimate goal of strengthening the mental health movement in Eastern Canada!
