The 2018 FCRC Conference

This year FCRC celebrates a milestone, marking its 40th year in financial counselling and consumer advocacy. While reflecting on the significant changes that have taken place over the years, we're developing new strategies to take forward into the future. Our conference theme is something meaningful to all financial counsellors and industry partners alike: Empowering People. The Pullman on the Park, will be our home for three days of cross-sector engagement, as we consider pathways to empower not only our clients in hardship, but also those who support them.

  • A variety of breakout sessions for in-depth discussions
  • Networking opportunities and cross-sector collaboration
