About Canada’s Recovery Capital Summit 

The 2021 National Recovery Capital Summit aims to transform provincial policies, services, and systems toward a recovery-oriented paradigm responsive to the needs of people nationwide and within our own communities.

In years prior, recovery-oriented events and conferences facilitated innovative knowledge exchanges, data sharing, and enhance service coordination. These efforts have articulated guiding principles and measures of recovery that can be used across programs and services to promote improvements in systems of care.  Stakeholders have generated ideas for advancing recovery-oriented systems of care (ROSC) in various communities across the country.

The progress of the thousands of service users, family members, providers, researchers, and policymakers has generated the foundational knowledge for this 2-day Recovery Summit. 

We invite you to actively participate in Recovery Oriented Systems of Care sessions during this 2-day Summit. This Summit provides an opportunity to inform the design of systems that extends beyond traditional prevention, treatment, and harm reduction to continue sustaining ongoing wellness, resiliency and quality of life.

What People are saying about past Recovery Captial Conferences

“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 the 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”
