Greetings!

The Manitoba Harm Reduction Network (MHRN) is pleased to invite you to Brokenhead Ojibway Nation for the 2018 Manitoba Harm Reduction Conference.

The conference is a three day event that will feature speakers from throughout Manitoba, as they share on a variety of topics related to harm reduction and sexual health.

  • Engage peer experts and centre peer voices in program development, delivery, and evaluation

  • Use an anti-oppressive lens in delivering services and working with underserved populations

  • Understand the link between colonization and lack of access to services

  • Engage in reducing systemic harms associated with policies and structures in our organizations

  • Develop and support harm reduction programming and strategies in the province
