Join us for the 2021 Poster Session held during the Sport Canada Research Initiative Conference to learn about the latest discoveries and cutting-edge insights on sport participation evidence in Canada. 

How is it going to work?

This year’s poster session will be on the virtual platform called Social Hour. Held during the 2021 Sport Canada Research Initiative Conference (SCRI) from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm (EDT), on Friday, October 29th

There will be two 30 minute sessions.  In each session you will enter a virtual room where you will first hear from savvy researchers on the latest knowledge they have uncovered, then you will have the opportunity to visit virtual tables within your room to network with presenters directly.

As there are 2 sessions, you will be able to participate in two exciting themed rooms of your choice to discover best practices in that area. In each room you will have 30 minutes to learn and engage with presenters, followed by a live Q&A.

Turn your video on during this interactive session to meet new people in the field and create connections!
