About the Canadian Policing Wellness Check Conference
The Canadian Policing Wellness Check Conference, hosted by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) is being held March 6-8, 2023 in Ottawa, Ontario, led, designed and moderated by Norman E. Taylor, Editor-in-Chief, JCSWB, in cooperation with several standing committees of the CACP.
The over-arching goal of the conference is to establish a renewed national baseline upon which to build continued developments in the policies, practices, and knowledge bases for improving mental health and general wellness outcomes; to examine and remedy inequities experienced in wellness outcomes and available services; to restore momentum to the most promising prior initiatives; and, to highlight and advance innovative forward strategies based on new lessons learned.
