About the National Animal Welfare Conference (NAWC)

The National Animal Welfare Conference is a MUST attend event if you are involved in animal welfare. It has been the biggest and best-attended animal welfare conference in Canada since 2014. The conference is an annual professional development and community-building event organized by Humane Canada™, the federation of humane societies and SPCAs. 

In 2022, the national animal welfare conference is planning to go Hybrid with a larger online attendance and smaller in-person attendance. This means the same conference will take place with a slightly different format for online vs in-person. Humane Canada™ will continuously monitor the status of the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the heath and safety of attendees, as this is our highest priority.
