Since 2002, the CSSSW has hosted or participated in exciting annual conferences. CSSSW is grateful for financial support from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) which enabled the hosting of our initial Canadian conferences, as well as the publication of numerous articles based on conference presentations. In 2006, the CSSSW co-hosted a conference with the Society for Spirituality and Social Work in the USA (SSSW). Since then, the North American Conference on Spirituality and Social Work is held annually at a different university / city and are hosted alternatively by CSSSW and SSSW. This mutually beneficial arrangement allows the CSSSW to not only be cost effective but truly inclusive by attracting a large talent pool of volunteers, practitioners, researchers, and speakers from Canada, the USA and around the globe.
