**NOTICE: Due to the suspension of Parliament and uncertainty of schedules and travel, the God and Government 2020 Conference has now been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience. We plan to share more details about meeting with local MPs in the constituency in the coming days!**
We look forward to welcoming 24 people (ages 18+) from across the country to Ottawa for this signature event! While we encourage any of our constituents in the Reformed Christian community to apply, we are especially encouraging those with a personal connection to the issue of assisted suicide to consider coming: whether you are a health care professional, or a person with a particular disability, or have a loved one who has experienced discrimination due to their disability, we want you to share your story and experiences with those who are shaping our laws in Canada. Your voice should be heard and we want to help amplify it!
The conference will run from April 22 – 23, 2020 with participants arriving on Tuesday, April 21st and leaving either the Thursday evening, April 23rd or on the following day. The conference will be facilitated from the ARPA Canada office in Ottawa.
