Annual Training Forum

Every year the BC Society of Transition Houses hosts an Annual Training Forum to gather and inspire anti-violence workers throughout BC. Whether in-person or virtual, the ATF brings people together to share their knowledge, skills and commitment to the work of supporting women, children and youth experiencing violence.

The 2023 BCSTH Annual Training Forum & AGM will take place from October 17-20 at the Radisson Hotel in Richmond. In a continuation of our ongoing theme of Strength in Solidarity, this year’s ATF title is Celebrating our Successes – 45 Years & Counting! Please join the BCSTH community as we gather to celebrate the 45th Anniversary of the Society and to learn, share and celebrate the storied accomplishments of our dynamic sector as we focus on meeting the daily complex needs of women, children and youth fleeing violence and at risk of violence across BC and Canada.
