Driven by the Governor General’s strong desire for Canadian youth to play safe and continue to get involved in sport and physical activity—the objectives of the one-day conference are to bring together federal, provincial and territorial government representatives and key stakeholders in the sport, recreation, health and education sectors to advance collaboration in the development of a national approach to manage, detect and prevent concussions. The event is presented in partnership with Sport Canada and the Sport Information Resource Centre.
