Over the past 6 years, Saskatchewan’s Hub Model of Collaborative Risk‐Driven Intervention has led Canada in a nation‐wide paradigm shift toward upstream approaches to human service delivery. By relying less on incident‐response and more on risk‐detection, we are seeing opportunities for mitigating risk before harm occurs. The key component to such pragmatic change is multi‐sector collaboration. As a leading expert in this emerging field, Dr. Nilson will provide a balanced overview of different Canadian initiatives that challenge conventional human service delivery. Following his presentation, we will learn the perspective of three major contributors to this powerful movement. Audience members will walk away with an understanding of cuting edge social innovation, while also becoming keenly aware of the incredible amount of work yet to be started.
