We are pleased to announce that our Mental Health and Wellness Seminar returns for the fourth straight year, courtesy of the Joint Career Development Program. This free virtual PD event will take place on February 7, 2024 and participants will qualify for 4 CPD hours. Registration is now open!
Juno award-winning singer-songwriter and mental health advocate Serena Ryder will join mental health practitioners and clinicians on the agenda as the Mental Health and Wellness Seminar continues to provide a mix of inspiring testimonies, actionable tips and strategies for both managing your mental health and supporting your colleagues.
This year’s mental health and wellness seminar is all about creating workplaces that are psychologically safe and how we can all play a role in supporting mental health at work.

Note: While this workshop has been developed with the new CPA ethics requirement in mind, and all participants will receive a certificate of attendance, each provincial chapter has its own rules when it comes to recognizing PD. We encourage members to verify on a case-by-case basis that ACFO-ACAF courses and events meet their provincial requirements.
