62nd Annual Institute on Addiction Studies presented by CACCF

Although the COVID-19 crisis forced us to cancel our usual “in person” conference for 2020 and this year (2021), we are determined to provide our past, current and future delegates with an exceptional virtual experience in partnership with the Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation (CACCF). 

This year’s Institute is pre-approved by the CACCF for 40 CEU hours!!!!

Delegates/Attendees will have full access to the virtual conference

When you register for the conference, you will be sent your official registration to log in and complete your selections to make the conference as smooth as possible. To acquire the 40 CEU’s you must be able to select a full day of sessions, attend the opening and closing remarks and visit the Sponsor/Exhibitor virtual booths.
