Welcome, we( ACCPA) look forward to seeing you at our 2022 conference in the beautiful town of Canmore, Alberta. Our theme for our upcoming conference is EVERY VOICE COUNTS : Holistic Approaches and Practices in Community Health and Safety.

ACCPA membership encompasses both rural and urban communities. These communities include Metis and Indigenous groups, police, municipalities, along with profit and nonprofit organizations. Each year, as we plan the conference, we work hard to ensure that our sessions and topics are relevant to our target audiences along with opportunities presented from past and future conversations.

The Conference Planning Committee is committed to putting together a timely and thought-provoking conference for you. We continually update this site as our program comes together.

I hope you are able to join us May 9-11, 2022 in Canmore at the Coast Hotel!

Excellent conference. Well organized and a great diversity of speakers. Thank you.

      My first time attending. Great conference. On point with today’s rural crime. Thanks

The presenters were simply outstanding and I loved the format of the sessions (different angles) and the fact that industry partners and business were included. Crime prevention is complex and you nailed the fact that there are so many stakeholders.

Varied conference topics around a central theme. Speakers who are open to more discussions during and after the conference.

I found it all valuable, something for everybody (urban-rural)….. Great job. Thanks for all your hard work.

The presentations about technology – they fit in all areas, especially rural.

Hearing about success stories in other communities. Good ideas for people from the outside!
