Vancouver, BC - Students from Langara’s School of Nursing hosted the Western and Prairie Regional Conference of the Canadian Nursing Students’ Association (CSNA) in Vancouver this weekend – the first time in the symposium’s 41-year history it has ever been held in BC. 

The three-day, student-led conference, which this year centred on models for harm reduction, was held at Vancouver’s iconic Library Square and welcomed 265 delegates from institutions across Canada as far afield as Dalhousie University in Halifax. Ten keynote guest speakers, including many who run innovative health programs in Vancouver, spoke about harm reduction principles, social justice, and the need for advocacy through the development of appropriate public health policies. They were joined by 14 student presenters from across Canada who were selected by a committee of nursing faculty members from Langara.
