Save the date: Our 2023 AGM is taking place Thursday, April 27
(details and registration coming soon)

This year, we have the pleasure of welcoming an expert in mental health, Allan Kehler, who is joining us as our keynote speaker. Allan will speak through personal experience and offer tangible solutions to create a workplace that is caring, supportive, and knows what steps to take when a worker is suffering.

“I have dedicated my time and energy to strengthen the conversation around mental health so that others don’t have to suffer in silence the same way as I did,” Allan says. “I have learned that vulnerability equals strength. The more we share, put our walls down, and get real, the more we connect with others and most importantly ourselves. Together, let’s create a safe, compassionate, and supportive environment that proactively addresses issues of mental wellness.”

If you want Allan to speak to your company, high school, or at your event while he is in Nova Scotia, you can contact him here: or 1-306-612-3233.
