Our focus to deliver a high quality, evidence-informed and diverse event to improve pain management strategies and enhance your professional development remains our primary objective. As we continue to coordinate, more information and logistics will be shared with you and updates will be posted.
For those of you who have already registered or wish to do so, more details and information will follow shortly.

Thank You Chateau Lake Louise

This pivot from an in person to virtual event could not have been possible without the cooperation of the Chateau Lake Louise team, and especially through the collaborative efforts of Luc Drolet, our dedicated regional sales manager from Fairmont, who has gone above and beyond to help us.
As a courtesy, the Chateau Lake Louise is still offering our group rate of $199 per night on a first come, first serve basis based on hotel availability. Rooms can be booked from October 14 - 18, 2020. Parking, service charges and taxes are extra. We encourage you to take advantage of this amazing offer.
