Unfortunately, due to the celebrations of Canada’s 150th Anniversary in Ottawa, Ontario, the Canadian Association of Medical and Surgical Nursing was unable to secure a venue for a conference in June 2017. Despite best efforts to move towards an Annual Conference, CAMSN Executives have made the decision to continue with Biennial Conferences, with the next being planned for June 2018.
