Seminar Series

Last Revised May 20, 2022

All presentations this year are planned to be in-person in the ACADA Presentation Pavilion located on the Argyle Level of the Halifax Convention Centre. However, to give presentation access to all of our attendees (including virtual), we will also be recording all of them and then making them available shortly after as on-demand videos via the Video Presentations module of the Online Registration System & Presentations Web Platform. There may also be on-demand ONLY videos, which we would make available using this module.
