About the Canadian Critical Care Conference

What makes our conference different?

It’s casual & fun and we like to talk about things that you won’t hear at other conferences.

We always feature a former patient who speaks about their experiences in the healthcare system. We also talk about things that make some people uncomfortable but need to be discussed. Registration is limited so that you will have the chance to interact with world renowned International faculty in an informal setting. Plus our event takes place in one of the most beautiful natural environments in the world!


Our world renowned healthcare speakers and technology experts, can help you/your team stay up to date on the latest healthcare trends and policies... See speakers.
