Northern Jack Summit

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

We are excited to announce the third annual Northern Jack Summit, which will bring together the next generation of mental health leaders from Canada’s territories; Nunavut, Northwest Territories and Yukon, as well as other northern and remote regions of Canada, to discuss the most pressing mental health issues youth face up North. 

Delegates will participate in workshops, engage with keynote speakers and work with progress-minded folks working across their region to foster understanding, connection and community. The day will be spent collaborating on strategies and sharing expertise about Canada’s North.

What will the Summit look like?
Jack.org is committed to ensuring a fair and accessible experience for everyone who wishes to participate. To that end, we will be looking into possible ways to host a hybrid version of the Summit, with some possible in-person and virtual programming. Jack.org is and will continue to follow the advice of Federal and Territorial Public Health officials. The safety of attendees, and organizers, is of the utmost priority. 



What about connectivity?
Jack.org is also exploring ways to ensure costs associated with participation, including any additional data and/or connectivity charges, can be reimbursed up to a certain amount. If you would like more information on this, please contact us at northernsummit@jack.org.
