CCSA’s Issues of Substance Conference

Sponsorship Opportunities for CCSA’s Issues of Substance 2021

CCSA is pleased to offer a wide array of sponsorship opportunities for its upcoming Issues of Substance 2021 conference. The conference is being held as a virtual event, November 23–25, 2021, as part of National Addictions Awareness Week.

Sponsorship opportunities ranging from $500 to $15,000 are available to meet every budget to help you support Canada’s only national conference focusing on substance use and addiction.

Why Become a Sponsor?

Your commitment to CCSA’s Issues of Substance conference is a unique opportunity to reach, engage with and support a broad cross-section of addiction workers, healthcare professionals, researchers, policy makers, knowledge brokers, and people with lived or living experience of substance use and their families and friends.

As a sponsor, you will be able to promote your organization as community-focused, collaborative and solutions-driven, while building positive awareness among a diverse, professional audience. Because the conference is being presented in a virtual environment, registered participants will have 30 days to access all recorded sessions from the conference. This period will provide you an extended opportunity to connect with those who attend.

Most importantly, you will be demonstrating your support for the wellness of all Canadians at a time when they most need it due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

New for 2021!

With an exciting new platform to present the conference, our team has developed a series of new sponsorship packages to provide sponsors with the opportunity to maximize their presence. Traditional sponsorship opportunities that are optimal for in-person events, such as the exhibit hall, will return when CCSA is able to safely welcome attendees back to an in-person conference.

New sponsorship opportunities for 2021 include:

  • Social media wall sponsor
  • Private networking session sponsor
  • Concurrent session sponsor
  • Profile wall sponsor
  • Virtual banner sponsor

Additional information about these and other opportunities is available in the Sponsorship Guide.
