Welcome to Building Empathy Conquering Apathy (BECA) 2018, convened by Canadians for a Civil Society. This is our third annual gathering to explore and strengthen common cause and common ground to bolster human dignity and shared values within our communities. In 2018 BECA is addressing the mental health and emotional well-being of some of the most vulnerable among us: refugees, seniors, indigenous Canadians – adolescents and youth. We invite everyone’s participation to address this theme, in a setting that is collaborative, collegial, and designed to encourage learning from one another.

This reception will bring together community leaders in an intimate gathering to share ideas. We hope we will have the honour to have you join us.
· On May 15th, the symposium will take place at MacEwan University, Robbins Health Learning Centre (10910 104 Ave, Edmonton, AB) from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, and will address the mental health and emotional well-being of the most vulnerable aforementioned, and where you are also cordially invited.
