The Banff Men’s Conference has been in existence for over fifty years. It is a gathering in late October of men from The United Church of Canada. Combining the beauty of the Rocky Mountains in Banff National Park, good food and companionship, and inspiring speakers, it has been a place of refreshment, retreat, challenge and inspiration for men over the years. This year’s speaker is Dr. David Long, PhD, who is particularly interested in asking questions in relation to the lives of boys and men, and over the years he has worked with many others interested in exploring them in the context of a wide variety of boys and men’s support groups, human service organizations, government agencies, as well as immigrant and First Nations communities.
