VRA Conference 2022- Call for Proposals, Speakers and Presenters


VRA Canada 2022 National Conference
June 1 – 3, Doubletree, Downtown Toronto, Ontario
Presentation Proposal Form

The 2022 Conference Planning Committee is pleased to invite vocational rehabilitation professionals, members of academia, students, and other potential presenters to submit a proposal for presentations that will contribute to our conference theme.

The conference will be held in-person, for the first time since 2019.

This year’s conference theme is Celebrate

This year’s theme is a hopeful one, that allows for presenters to examine, discuss, and present on a variety of topics of interest to VR professionals in our rapidly-changing world. We hope that presenters will suggest sessions and topics that explore and explain the new environment we all face as we emerge from over two years of COVID. Let’s celebrate what the pandemic taught us and make sure we take those lessons forward as we build and expand our profession – return-to-work and disabilities take on a much broader meaning with the new lens we bring to our work from our own experiences, observations and techniques developed during COVID. As always, the conference will present sessions for vocational rehabilitation professionals and those who specialize in vocational evaluation.

The Conference Planning Committee strongly encourages interactive and engaging presentations that are anywhere from 1 – 1.5 hours long. We are also happy to entertain ideas for panel discussions and other types of interactive sessions.

To submit a proposal, send a PDF with the information listed below to info@vracanada.com.

  • Short bio
  • Photo/headshot
  • Topic and brief paragraph explaining the session content
  • Length of session
  • Speaker fee and travel/accommodation requirements

Deadline for proposal submissions is February 25, 2022 at 5:00 pm EST.
