Early Childhood Education is a demanding field that can be easy for those working in it to lose themselves. Maintaining clarity and a sense of purpose are absolutely integral to an early childhood professional’s health and well-being, as well as the health and well being of those they surround themselves with.
Your responsibilities may be big, but your capacity to meet them is so much bigger. Through reflective and playful practices, you’ll discover the traits that give you the energy you need to be the person you always wanted to be. You’ll draw from the strength of the people that you’ve looked up to. And you’ll learn to see yourself through the eyes of those who look up to you. In that light, you can achieve a grounded sense of self, rooted and confident as you own your role as a role model.
Workshop participants will participate in reflective practices that can contribute to a confident sense of self and will use hindsight as a foundation for future goal setting.
This workshop is hosted by the Early Childhood Community Development Centre.
Older adults living at home facing frailty and chronic illness, and their family caregivers, often experience challenges affecting their quality of life. Their priorities must be addressed by healthcare providers. Unfortunately, these are easily overlooked in the “hustle and bustle” of care. Tools for assessing quality of life make the priorities of patients and family caregivers visible to healthcare providers and leaders. The goal of the Canadian Frailty Network is to develop resources to support the use of quality of life assessment tools.
The Network will meet with each group to identify their needs and the types of resources that would be helpful to them. Working with each group, they will develop customized resources that include education materials (for in person and self-guided learning), videos, and communication tools. These materials will be made freely available via an existing online person centred health information system, called the Quality of Life and Practice Support System (QPSS). The QPSS allows patients and family caregivers to complete quality of life assessment tools and share their information with healthcare providers.
This project will help put the voices of older adults living with frailty, and of their family caregivers, at the centre of healthcare. This goal unites patients, families, clinicians, and healthcare and government leaders in the pursuit of a Canadian healthcare system that meets the needs of all Canadians.

Current emissions of greenhouse gases put the world on track for warming of more than 2 degrees Celsius, a level that increases the risk of potentially severe climate change impacts on health. Climate change is increasing risks to the health of Canadians, but not all populations and communities will be affected by climate change equally. Existing health inequities are exacerbated by climate change impacts and adaptations may inadvertently perpetuate inequities if broader social, political and economic factors are not considered.
Information on the health risks to Canadians from climate change and a new framework for understanding intersecting vulnerabilities that is being developed for the next national climate change and health assessment will be discussed in this presentation.
This webinar is hosted by the Ontario Age-Friendly Communities Outreach Program.
Evolving social, economic and fiscal realities have created a strain in the treatment of mental illness. As a result of this strain, police services often become the first line of contact between a person in crisis and available resources. Police services have had to adapt to this new reality and find collaborative approaches to resolve these difficult, sometimes violent situations. The emergence of mobile crisis teams, situation tables and better training for front line officers has made an impact for some, but the need for a more integrated strategy still exists.
This webinar will focus on the York Regional Police integrated strategy which includes all of the above and additional resources such as the digitized Brief Mental Health Screener, two full time social workers, a seniors safety unit which specializes in issues such as dementia and vulnerable persons, and Police/Hospitals Relations Committees as well as other resources and future plans.
This webinar is hosted by the Human Services & Justice Coordinating Committee.
