20 Years of MECC

This year’s Missing & Exploited Children Training Conference (MECC) marks two decades of critical learning for frontline professionals. More than 4500 people have joined us in Winnipeg over the past 20 years!

MECC 2020 will focus primarily on online crimes against children, the global fight against child sexual abuse material, supporting survivors, and sharing victim’s voices.

Due to the growing attendance at the MECC, a limited number of spots per profession will be made available.

About the Conference

The MECC provides training that frontline professionals need to know, addressing the ongoing issues associated with missing and exploited children cases and the constantly evolving technologies impacting Canadian children.

People who benefit from the conference: Law enforcement members, educators, prosecutors, counsellors, lawyers, medical professionals, policy analysts, and others working in online child exploitation.
