Save the Date! Annual Training Forum 2020

The 2020 BCSTH Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Annual Training Forum (ATF) will be hosted virtually in accordance with Provincial Health’s guidelines around large gatherings.

The virtual AGM will take place on Thursday, October 15th in the AM followed by the Program Meetings in the PM.

The virtual ATF will take place on October 19th – 23rd, Monday to Friday, from 9am to 2:30pm each day on Zoom. There will be 2 keynotes and one set of workshops to choose from every day, with a morning and lunch break. And yes, Queer as Funk will join us again!

The 2020 ATF theme is Strength in Solidarity. The ATF week will honour and highlight the resilient dynamic work of our membership and the wider anti-violence sector in these challenging times. BCSTH is busy planning a virtual training forum where we can learn, be inspired by each other, find common ground and friends (old and new), and enhance the ways in which we provide support services collectively for all BC women, children and youth experiencing violence. We look forward to “seeing” you there.

The BCSTH 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 and Third Stage Houses, Safe Homes, Prevention, Education, Advocacy, Counselling and Empowerment (PEACE) and Violence is Preventable (VIP) programs, anti-violence support workers, managers and executive directors.

Stay tuned for meeting and registration details and if you have any questions please contact Harjit, Director of Training at or Natasha, ATF Event Producer at
