On March 27-28, Memorial University participated in the pan-Canadian Vanier Institute of the Family’s Families in Canada 2019 Conference by co-hosting a satellite conference called Families on the Move. This unique and inclusive pan-Canadian event brought together diverse leaders from across Canada who study, serve and support families for two days of research, knowledge-sharing and engaging conversation focused on the conference theme Memorial’s ‘Families on the Move Satellite Conference’ engaged individuals with lived experiences of mobility-related challenges as mobile workers, immigrants, Indigenous Peoples, military personnel, veterans, public safety personnel, survivors of domestic violence, and people with disabilities. It also engaged those who study, serve and support these groups and their families. Over two days, participants from government, academia, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and the community at large came together to discuss what mobility meant to them; how it shaped their access to or delivery of government services, how it informed their research practices or collaborations, and how it created opportunities and challenges for their families.
