Advertise

Sponsor advertisement space in our invaluable Conference Program that will be given to our conference attendees and viewed by over 500 families*.

This is an opportunity to increase your company’s social responsibility within the national community.

It is also an opportunity to advertise to a unique demographic of people with Down syndrome and their families. Because each Conference Program contains important resources related to the topics of our National Conference, they will remain in our attendees households for years to come.

If you are interested in purchasing ad space, please contact the Canadian Down Syndrome Society

*Based on predicted conference attendance and additional circulation.
