Couchiching ConversationsLaunched in 2009, Couchiching Conversations are free public events that aim to provide a safe space for challenging discussions.


To date, we have held conversations in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Calgary, and other cities across Canada. We have covered a wide spectrum of topics, issues, themes, and stories—you can catch a glimpse of what we’ve been talking about previously in our archive.
