This event will support learning and create networking opportunities to build health and safety foundations in both the educational system and throughout the industry. By educating and training future workers, we are educating and training future leaders in our industries. Presented in partnership with MINERVA Canada Safety Management Education Inc., this year’s event will feature an international leadership speaker, a panel of educational experts in health and safety and industry specialists.

Up to 70% of future workers get their first job in the service and hospitality industries, making it even more important to build a healthy and safe mindset in a meaningful and impactful way before they enter the workforce. Those youth, newcomers, and other new workers are the future leaders of our province. We look forward to seeing all of you there. Below is our agenda for the day and more on all of our speakers.
