Tiohtià:ke / Montreal is historically known as a meeting place for First Peoples. We wish to honour these peoples by recognizing that our meeting will take place on unceded traditional Indigenous territory.
Ready for the face-to-face learning opportunities to start again? We, here, at the Canadian Association for Interventional Radiology certainly are — and we hope you’ll join us too!
After almost two years of online-only interactions, we’re looking forward to bringing together interventional radiology professionals from across Canada for face-to-face conversations. The excitement of a live audience and the engagement that comes from a room full of IRs – those dynamics can’t be matched in a virtual setting. The spirit of the IR community is stronger when we’re all together in one place as well.
Goodbye Zoom & Teams, hello face-to-face connections!
