About the 2nd Canadian Conference on Positive Psychology

The conference will bring together internationally-renowned researchers in positive psychology, positive psychology practitioners, clinicians, educators and teachers, business consultants, coaches and the general public from across Canada and the world. Our goal is to share leading-edge research and best practices in the application of positive psychology across disciplines.



Applied positive psychology has been demonstrated to:

  • Improve mental and physical health;
  • Deepen the quality of our relationships and strengthen team bonds;
  • Increase employee productivity, sales, creativity, and retention;
  • Identify and nurture a strengths-based approach to coaching, counselling and performance improvement 
  • Improve mental health in our schools
  • Shorten the time it takes to bounce back from failure;
  • Provide skills to deal with stress, pain and loss;
  • Help discover greater meaning in life
  • Positive psychology is about finding ways to recognize and foster the things that lead to flourishing individuals
