What makes our conference
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.

Venue & Contacts
Our Sponsors and Partners
I wanted to say a truly heartfelt, formal thank you to you and your team (Zena et al) for accommodating both Lily and I in Whistler for the CCCC. We are so grateful and humbled by the opportunity you afforded us and have now taken it upon ourselves to annoy everyone in existence by not shutting up about the conference and Whistler. As you warned us, we both completely fell for Canada
My 8th time to CCCC, and I have some consistent reflections:
Firstly, you are an incredible host, and although your dance card must be full, you make us feel welcome, and a part of the place, every year.
Secondly, your program is engaging. From a personal perspective it is the professional aspect, the difficult or interesting topics , that I love.
Finally, we are forgiven for skiing. This is a unique aspect of your conference, and I don’t know if it is explicit. In a world of competing demands, it is wonderful to be able to ski, and get lost in the moment.
Tremendous organization, great meeting, excellent blend of science and society. I’d love to come back.
My favourite week on the professional calendar.
