We’re fortunate to have the support of Calgary’s front line workers. CPS is an active supporter of the Terminator Foundation and will be attending this year’s conference.

Those who struggle with substance abuse disorder, who are in recovery and their families

We have recovering addicts and Terminator triathlon athletes joining us again this year to share their incredible stories about their journeys to recovery.

Exhibitors

We welcome local vendors in the addiction and mental health space to interact with attendees and provide information to their resources. Interested in having a vendor booth?
