The Learning From Practice is an annual conference of the McDowell Foundation that ensures Foundation-funded researchers have the opportunity to share their project experiences and outcomes with their colleagues across the province.

Keynote Speaker – Corey O’Soup

Corey O’Soup currently serves as Saskatchewan’s Advocate for Children and Youth. Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Corey is a member of the Key First Nation and becomes the province’s first First Nations advocate. Corey and his wife Jacinda have five kids and he has an extensive career working on behalf of children and youth in his role as a teacher and as the First Nations and Métis advisor at the Ministry of Education. His priorities as Saskatchewan’s Advocate for Children and Youth are finding ways to reduce the number of First Nations and Métis youth in care and for improving mental health services in Saskatchewan, especially the north.
