The 2021 BCSTH Annual Training Forum and AGM will be taking place from October 20th to 22nd, 2021 virtually.

This year’s Strength in Solidarity theme is Re-imagining Connections. Please join the BCSTH community as we gather to explore re-imagining connections in the current pandemic and post-pandemic world. We hope to foster curiosity, imagination and collective strength as we re-imagine new ways to build solidarity and remain connected on this journey to end violence against women, children and youth together in these changed times.

Our Annual Training Forum is host to over 300 anti-violence workers who support women, youth and children in a variety of capacities including Transition and Second Stage Houses, Safe Homes and Prevention, Education, Advocacy, Counselling and Empowerment (PEACE), formerly, Children Who Witness Abuse, Programs, anti-violence support workers, managers and executive directors.

Call for Proposal Now Open
We look forward to receiving proposals for workshops that explore innovative dynamic approaches to connecting and finding common ground to support women, children and youth as they respond to violence amidst three simultaneous public health and safety emergencies involving gender based violence, the opioid crisis and COVID-19.

Please complete the call for proposal online by Wednesday, June 30th.
