The Caring North. Fostering care and wellbeing in northern communities. Join this Labrador Cares event for an important conversation to mark Violence Prevention Month in Newfoundland and Labrador. Feb 2, 12 p.m. EST, virtual via zoom.

What does a caring community look like?

What are the unique care and wellbeing preferences and needs of northern, Inuit, and First Nations women and girls?

And what are northern, Inuit, and First Nations people and organizations doing to create caring communities in the north?

Join us for an important Community Cares discussion about factors that interrupt and build community care and wellbeing. This panel will be of interest to community members, local organizations, community-based researchers, and anyone working on building and restoring caring communities.
