Habitat Canada invites you to the 2020 National Conference – Virtual Edition

Although the world of “in-person” events has significantly changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that has not stopped us from brining you an amazing conference, virtual style.

We look forward to welcoming all Habitat for Humanity staff and volunteers from across Canada to our 2020 conference taking place November 18 to November 20.  Our theme for the conference is “Fueling the Engines of Change” as we focus on the positive side of change, helping leaders to embrace, adapt and even to lead the change we want to see in the world. 

Join us in this virtual space for an incredible few days of thought provoking keynote speakers, timely plenary topics, our health and wellness series, along with position forums, socials, and a virtual booths exhibit. 

We are excited to offer this three-day event free to the federation, so mark your calendars and make sure to register by Friday, October 30 to be entered into a draw for our Habitat Canada gift pack, which includes a $100 Amazon gift card!

Health and Wellness tips

We understand how difficult it can be to participate in long virtual sessions. Zoom fatigue is real and many studies have been conducted on how to avoid virtual burnout. 

Visit our Health and Wellness page for information on our Health and Wellness series and additional tips on how to combat Zoom fatigue.

  • Just 30 minutes of exercise can reduce stress and boost mood
  • Practice mindfulness
  • Unplug from technology a couple hours every day
  • Get balanced sleep
  • Check in with your friends and reach out when you need someone
  • Practice an attitude of gratitude

Working from home:

  • Create different “zones” in your home
  • Ensure your chair is comfortable
  • Get up at least once an hour
  • Stay hydrated
