Central Jack Summit


Central Jack Summit:
February 03 - 04, 2023 is proud to announce our first ever Central Jack Summit, which brings together the next generation of mental health leaders and advocates from across Ontario and Quebec to discuss the most pressing mental health issues you face in your communities!

Previously known as Ontario Summit, we are really excited to bring you a brand-new Summit focused on the mental health landscape in Central Canada (Ontario and Quebec), all in an effort to expand the conversation on mental health and deliver more impactful programming.

At the Central Jack Summit, delegates will participate in workshops, engage with keynote speakers and other thought leaders, and work with fellow advocates from across their 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 across Ontario and Quebec! 

**Central Jack Summit is an anglophone event. While Francophone delegates living in Quebec and Ontario are encouraged to apply, we want to make it clear that this is not a bilingual summit and that our programming will be taking place in English. If you would like to take part in a Francophone event, stay tuned for more details around our National Summit!**
