The 2023 Canadian Sexual Exploitation Summit is a free online conference happening May 3-5.
CSES brings together more than 50 expert speakers who will present the latest research, innovative strategies, and lessons helpful to leaders from every sector in the fight against sexual exploitation.
May 4-5 are the main summit days. A free individual registration gives you access to dozens of speakers and sessions for these days, as well as several live panels.
May 3rd is our 'pre-summit' day. It will feature special training sessions on sexual exploitation geared towards those working in the Health Care and Education sectors. You can register for one or both of these sessions in addition to registering for the main summit on May 4-5.
May 3rd will also be a special day for youth. Details to follow!
