Group Care Research Symposium
The overall goals of the Group Care Research Symposium are to:
- Identify examples of group and residential care practice informed by research and evaluation in Alberta;
- Discuss ways to improve outcomes for young people in their care.

The day will include a keynote address by James Anglin and presentations from a variety of group care providers in Alberta.  At the end of the day we will have a panel discussion to look at where to go from here.
