Early Development Imperative Conference
We recently received an email from Council for Early Child Development about their upcoming Early Development Imperative conference. The conference will be held in Winnipeg, November 16th through 18th, 2009. Registration and the complete conference program are not scheduled to be posted on their web site until mid-August, but you can find some information in this flyer for the meantime.
The CECD’s National Lead Fellow, Joanne Schroeder, had this to say about the conference:
Building on our events earlier this year in Sackville and Montreal, the Winnipeg conference will bring together researchers, community members and policy makers. The event will see the launch of our pan-Canadian analysis of EDI results and be a key step in the Council’s goal of building an effective and comprehensive system of monitoring children’s development in Canada.
