2021 Conference

Conference and SAR Postponed!

New Dates: April 30 & May 1, 2021

CONFERENCE POSTPONED

After much thought and following the directives of Alberta Health, ASPSH has made the decision to postpone our 2020 conference.  We want to provide an environment where we can gather and to do the learning and networking which we all love about our conference. 

Good News!  Rather than wait another two years until 2022 to have our conference, we have moved it to Friday, April 30 - Saturday, May 1, 2021!  We are delighted that Andrew Gurza will join us as our keynote speaker. 

The good news gets better!  If you have already registered for our 2020 conference, your registration will port over to 2021 dates with no additional costs.

If you’re not registered and would like to grab a spot for 2021, you can still register at aspsh.ca for the 2020 rates until December 31, 2020.

If you were hoping to come to our SAR, stay tuned, more details to come.

If you want to keep learning until we can meet in person, check out our online classes and watch for more webinars in the fall.

We hope to welcome you on April 30-May 1, 2021 in Calgary.  Thank you for your ongoing support of ASPSH in our commitment to promote optimal sexual and reproductive health and wellbeing throughout the lifespan for all.
