65th Canadian Psychiatric Association’s Annual Conference banner

Every year, more than 1,200 psychiatrists and other mental health care professionals attend the Canadian Psychiatric Association’s conference to educate themselves on the latest research in the field, exchange ideas, and network with colleagues from across the country. This year, Dr. Randall White is honoured to be presenting a symposium on the diagnostic and therapeutic advances in Schizophrenia along with several of his esteemed colleagues.

As the largest psychiatric professional development program in Canada, the CPA is an invaluable resource. 2015 marks a new direction for its annual conference with several changes to usual programming:

  • Pre-conference courses will be offered Wednesday, September 30
  • Thursday, Friday, and Saturday mornings will each offer an all-delegate keynote plenary
  • The AGM and President’s Gala have been moved to Friday morning and evening, respectively
  • Refreshment stands with coffee and tea will now be available at both venues

The conference will be held October 1st – 3rd at both The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. For location and room rates, visit fairmont.com/hotel-vancouver and vancouver.hyatt.com/en/hotel/home.html or book online 2015 CPA FHV and 2015 CPA HRV.
