REACH hosted a Program Science session during CAHR, where participants explored its pragmatics with real world examples and learned how these approaches can create more effective health interventions and solutions.
The 2015 Manitoba Harm Reduction Conference was presented by the 595 Prevention Team and Ka Ni Kanichihk. It included presentations by Mary Deleary from the National Native Addictions Partnership Foundation, and Krysta Williams from the Native Youth Sexual Health Network.

On March 11, 2015 the REACH Alberta Working Group (RAWG) met at Mount Royal University (MRU) in Calgary. The group, created in November 2014, hopes to link HIV research efforts in Alberta to the CIHR Centre for REACH and other community-based research (CBR) initiatives across Canada.
