About the Conference

The Canadian Down Syndrome Conference acts as a platform to share current developments and information from experts in their respective fields, as they relate to Down syndrome. Information in the fields of education, aging, health care, research, and advocacy will be shared with members of the community in the form of plenary/keynote speakers, panel discussions, and presentations.
The 31st Canadian Down Syndrome Conference will take place in Hamilton, Ontario  at the Sheraton Hamilton from May 18 - 20, 2018
“The first few conferences I went to were about learning about my son. The next were about making his life as great as I could. Now that he’s a teenager, the conference has been about inspiration for his future.”
– Sheena, Parent Advocate
