Physical and Health Education Canada (PHE Canada) is now inviting submissions to present at the 2019 Healthy School Communities National Forum.

The event will take place in downtown Ottawa, Ontario on November 5-7, 2019. The theme of the 2019 HSC National Forum is "Every School In Canada Becoming A Healthy School".

The 2019 National Forum Program Committee is seeking presentations that fit into the following themes:

Diversity and Inclusion: presenters will help further the discussion between equity and equality in the education system.

Beyond the Binder: presenters will discuss policy and practices supporting comprehensive school health with the lens that student health and learning outcomes can be improved when go beyond the school curriculum and resources.

Play: presenters will engage and equip practitioners with useful tools, approaches, programs and resources to support higher quality play: a critical part of the school day for developing social, emotional and physical competencies.

Stories from the Field: presenters will be sharing their 'better' practices, provide solutions based approaches, and build capacity through strengthening networks to further healthy school communities.

Teacher and Staff Well-being: presenters will bring focus to teacher and staff well-being.
