Symposium happened April 30 - May 2, 2018 at The Westin Bayshore Hotel Vancouver (1601 Bayshore Drive, Vancouver). Delegates from around the province joined us at the 2018 Annual Symposium and (re)connected with colleagues from around the province to exchange ideas, explored new initiatives, and celebrated the amazing work being done in BC's communities.

This year's theme focused on inclusion in recreation spaces and places, with session streams that followed the five goals of The Framework for Recreation in Canada.
