2007 Conference

The tile of PREVNet’s 2nd Annual Conference, "Rise Up for Respectful Relationships" was inspired by the words of Her Excellency, The Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean, the Governer General of Canada and PREVNet’s patron: “Let’s all rise up for a world where respect is valued above all else”.

This conference raised awareness about bullying and victimization and shared best practices from leading experts. As PREVNet is a Networks of Centres of Excellence - New Initiative partnering with 42 National Organizations and 39 Canadian Researchers (at the time), participants from a broad cross-section of constituencies had the opportunity to network and exchange knowledge.

The conference was held at McGill University, Montreal, Quebec from Wednesday,
May 16th to Friday, May 18th. Wednesday, May 16th was PREVNet Research Partners Day, Thursday, May 17th was PREVNet Research and National Partners Day, and Friday, May 18th was General Public Day.

Highlights of the conference included: a welcoming address from Drs. Pepler and
Craig (two of Canada’s leading experts in the field of bullying and victimization and the Scientific Co-Directors of PREVNet), live theatre, musical performances, video presentations, and hands-on learning opportunities at workshops presented by a variety of PREVNet Partner Organizations and Researchers.

PREVNet received generous sponsorship for the conference from Microsoft, Mosaic Sales Solutions, Strategic Objectives, and Gregory Cochrane.
