Shaping the Future 2017
We highly recommend all Wellness Fund projects attend Shaping the Future 2017.
If you are using your grant to attend the conference, please register for the
pre-conference session hosted by the Wellness Fund and Alberta Health Services, as well as the evening reception to meet the team and pick up your grant information package.

Birds of a Feather Connect Together
Improved connectedness in the classroom has been statistically proven to increase academic success in students. Making the behaviours that increase classroom connectedness a habit in the staff room can also have positive effects on the well-being of teachers.
