Atlantic Family Forum

Each year, families affected by a workplace tragedy gather from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, and PEI for a weekend of support and healing at the Atlantic Family Forum.

With the important restrictions in place to safeguard the health of all Canadians, we have made the decision to postpone the Atlantic Family Forum for 2020.

The Forum was scheduled for June 12-14. Instead, we have moved our booking at the Oak Island Resort and Conference Centre to November 6-8. We will be sending and posting more information as that date gets closer, and will notify all our family members when we re-open registration.

This was not a hard decision for us to make, since the safety and health of our family members, partners, volunteers and staff are our first priority. However, it was a painful decision because we know how important the forum is to our family members. If you feel in need of support during these especially difficult days, you could reach out to your Volunteer Family Guide or Karen Lapierre Pitts, Family Support Manager at or 1-888-567-9490.
