    Format of The Symposium:
    There will be 6 simultaneous sessions running throughout the day. Each participant will pick one session to be in for the whole day. 

    We have limited space in each session so you will be asked on the registration form to tell us your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices for the day. Every effort will be made to place you in your 1st choice, however that might not be possible in all cases.  We will confirm which session you are in via email when the registration process is completed.

    The Symposium also includes a key note address from Dr. Christine McLean of MSVU, the annual Awards Luncheon, and a final gathering event with everyone together at the end of the day.

    AECENS members are also invited to stay for the Annual General Meeting after the Symposium wraps up.

    As you proceed through the registration process you will be asked to select a session for the day. They are:

    • Indigenous Learning with Brian Francis & Michelle Paul
    • Newcomers in ELCC with Jackie Youkgyoung Lee & Rocksana Pouladi
    • Engaging in Community Support Through Afrocentric Mentorship with Moashella Shortte & Trina Fraser
