Building Recovery Capital in Canada 2019
Building on our Strengths
This year’s addiction and mental health recovery conference theme is “Building on our Strengths” featuring keynote speakers, workshops, and dialogue opportunities to help create Canada’s National Recovery Capital Assessment Toolkit.
The Recovery Capital Conference of Canada SOLD OUT in 2017 and 2018 — while Recovery Day BC hosted record crowds of over 20,000 people. This momentum is helping us take the conference to cities across Canada
This year the Recovery Capital Conference will focus on Building Recovery Capital by engaging people to gain a better understanding of Recovery Capital and how to foster it in people, workplaces, families and communities.
Walk away from this campaign learning the benefits of evidence based Recovery Capital Assessment tools and how they work. We need your input.
Healthcare professionals, people in recovery, people who use substances, the general public, unions, occupational health leaders and families will be engaged in this campaign.
What is Recovery Capital?
Recovery Capital is a focus on the development of social capital (healthy and stable relationships), material capital (finances and accommodation), human capital (mental and physical health, skills, and employment) and cultural capital (values, beliefs, and attitudes).
Let’s help build individuals, workplaces and communities recovery capital so together we can overcome addiction and mental health issues.

What people are saying about last year’s Conference
“This is an exciting area of Addiction Medicine”
“The venue was perfect because even though we were indoors all day you didn’t feel like you hadn’t seen the outside”
“The conference was amazing and the only feedback I have is for the people who didn’t come and didn’t come on purpose. We all need to open our minds and collaborate on fighting addiction and mental health. Only then came true progress be made”
“Amazing networking that was happening, conversations so passionate and important they could not be at the session on time! I also loved that although the event was sponsored by private industry the speakers did not hold back their perspectives on same. This was also profound. This conference was amazing and I think this focus on recovery capital is the sea change or paradigm shift our system needs”
