Upcoming Conference

In partnership with Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center, The Canadian Association of Ambulatory Care (CAAC) welcomes you to attend our 8th annual conference, being held on May 23 -24, 2024 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto. Due  to an abundance of caution, we postponed the fall conference due to rising COVID 19 infection numbers. and concerns raised by local and international delegates. 

 The CAAC conference remains of interest to many healthcare professionals working in ambulatory care, especially now with more activity and treatments moving from the hospital setting to the community.

What are the standards? Who is qualified to do what and how will patients and families feel safe? These are just a few areas of focus that will be addressed at our 2024 conference.

We have an exciting event planned which includes a a full conference with a keynote address, oral and poster presentations, half-day workshop; a networking evening event and  great prizes to be won.

 We invite you to register and submit an abstract now.
