Event Details

Event Dates: Thursday March 9 – Saturday March 11, 2023
Location: Grey Eagle Resort & Casino, Calgary AB
Theme: Honouring Our Roots, Building Our Future

What is the Symposium All About?

The Alberta Healthy Communities Symposium (AHCS) is an opportunity for wellness Champions to come together to network and build upon current community resources and programs which will allow them to build on the roots of health and wellness. With this fundamental and holistic focus on wellness, participants will be inspired to launch, deepen, or evolve Healthy Eating, and Active Living (HEAL) initiatives in their communities. Communities ChooseWell celebrates that our communities come from diverse backgrounds, so whether your work aims to influence grassroots, organizational, or systems level change, the symposium will have inspiring content for all!

What Will You Learn?

Join us for the first in-person symposium since 2020! Following the impact of COVID-19, we recognize the need to strengthen the foundations of healthy eating and active living in Albertan communities. This year’s theme is Honouring Our Roots, Building Our Future; while honouring the core roots of the Communities ChooseWell HEAL mandate, we aim to provide tangible and actionable content designed to enhance health and wellness initiatives in delegates’ communities.

This year’s symposium will focus on three streams: healthy eating, active living, and community development.
