Parent Conference 2017

Morven Campus: 70 Morven Drive, West Vancouver, B.C. V7S 1B2

Presented by

Parents’ Council is excited to present our third annual Parent Conference. Born out of an idea to bring parents together to provide information and resources about Collingwood Life, the conference has evolved into a full day event that offers tips and tools on parenting, university preparation, technology, social and emotional issues, and many more relevant topics that affect us all.

Parent Conference is now FULL.
Visit here to be added to our waitlist.

We ask that parents commit to attending the full day and if you are not able to honour your RSVP, please contact so that the spot can go to the next person on the waitlist.

This year we are thrilled to have our key note speaker Alyson Schafer. Alyson is one of Canada’s most notable parenting experts along with being a family counsellor, educator, author and consultant.

View Alyson Schafer's TED talk here.

You may want to read a copy of one of Alyson’s books: Breaking the Good Mom Myth, Honey, I Wrecked The Kids and Ain’t Misbehavin'. Copies will be available for sale (by cash only) after her session as well.
