The Solutions Event
The Solutions Event was held on November 17, 2022 in Mitchell, Ontario and the day focused on connection, collaboration and collective work to develop solutions for all. Discussions and activities were future-oriented and solution-focused and at the end of the day everyone walked away with an action plan to implement in their own individual sphere.
