Northern Jack Summit - Fall 2022

*APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN ON A ROLLING BASIS FOR NORTHERN JACK SUMMIT FORM BELOW.*

We are so excited to announce the fourth annual Northern Jack Summit, bringing together the next generation of leaders from across the territories to discuss the most pressing mental health and wellness issues that you face in the North. 

Due to the ongoing public health situation, and a possible sixth wave of COVID-19 taking place this spring, out of an abundance of caution Jack.org has decided to postpone the 4th annual Northern Jack Summit until Fall 2022. This decision was not made lightly, and was done in order to continue protecting potential delegates, staff and volunteers who will be attending Northern Jack Summit. While we’re disappointed that we won’t be able to see you this Spring like we were hoping, we are very excited to welcome our young leaders from the territories in person when it’s safe to do so. We are still accepting applications on a rolling basis, so apply below if you're interested!

This Fall, we are happy to announce that this event will be a fully in-person summit, following all guidance and regulations as set out by the local governments. All delegate travel and accommodations to Yellowknife for the Summit will covered by Jack.org.


What is Northern Summit?

At Northern Summit, delegates can expect to participate in workshops, engage with artists and keynote speakers, and work with young people from across the territories to foster understanding, connection and community. The day will be spent sharing and collaborating on goals and ideas, with the ultimate goal of strengthening mental health and wellness in the North!
