Join us for DRNBC's two-day annual conference that brings together community members, students, and educators from across the province to share knowledge, new ideas, the latest research, and opportunities to connect and network with others in the field.

This year’s theme Where to Next? Navigating Post-Secondary Transitions investigates how we react and adapt to changing environments. Students transitioning into, through and out of post-secondary environments go through rapid transitions and can often feel that they are expected to figure it out on their own. Rapid change can lead to feelings of vulnerability, anxiety, isolation, ambivalence and other new areas of emotional terrain as students learn to navigate their own path. Transitions can be especially difficult when students face additional barriers, disabilities and challenges. Other members of the community, including staff, faculty, service providers, government, and families, encounter transitions and change as they strive to keep their knowledge and practices current in an ever-evolving field.
