Grand Slams and Catastrophes 2022 – Whistler, BC

4 February 2022 - 5 February 2022

We would like to acknowledge that we are fortunate to conduct this meeting on the shared unceded territory of the Squamish Nation and Lil’wat Nation. We respectfully honour their cultures and traditions.

Grand Slams & Catastrophes (#GSC22) is baaack! And it’s personal!

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.

We are working diligently with the venue and the local health officials to ensure a safe in-person event. Goodbye Zoom & Teams, hello face-to-face connections!

You must be fully vaccinated to attend the Grand Slams and Catastrophes 2022.
