2023 Annual Conference Update

We take the safety and health of our participants, staff, and community very seriously. Hence, we decided to turn the Indigenous Physical Activity & Wellness Conference into a Hybrid In-Person & Virtual Event.

This event highlights over 30 speakers who all have a passion to share their teachings. IPACC believes in physical activity as a way to health and wellness, and we will continue to follow our dreams for a better future for our communities.  

This is the nation’s largest conference on Physical Activity & Wellness for First Nations, Métis and Inuit people, created for all of those with an interest in sports, recreation, fitness, and traditional activity who may be band council members; health directors, representatives, or health practitioners; counsellors or social workers; federal, provincial, or municipal health employees; academics; researchers; recreation workers; coaches; fitness instructors; cultural leaders; community members, and all others interested in the promotion of health and wellness through physical activity.
