Children’s Healthcare Canada is thrilled to be hosting our annual conference from December 3-5, 2023, at the beautiful Hyatt Regency in downtown Vancouver! For those unable to meet in Vancouver, a real time virtual option will also be available.

This event is being closely planned with our local co-host, the BC Children's Hospital. Our conference focus will be on right-sizing children's health systems for the future with a theme of Flip the Script: High Performing Health Systems for Kids!

The three-day conference convenes the child health community to share and learn from colleagues and thought leaders on issues of the day. In 2023, we will focus on the action we can take as individuals, organizations, and collectively, as a pan-Canadian Association to create high performing health systems to measurably improve children's health outcomes. Invited speakers will share through a series of keynote, panel, and workshop presentations. We look forward to bringing back our Poster Fair and an awards ceremony to recognize and honour the leadership of children's health champions.

Sponsors of the annual conference will have the opportunity to network and meet with child health leaders face to face, and online via a dynamic web-based platform.

This year's Children's Healthcare Canada Annual Conference will be prefaced by a 1-day pop-up event on transitioning to adult care with a theme of Ready, Set, Go: Finding Positive Solutions to Support a Successful Landing in the Adult World. The Child Health Hub in Transition to Adult Healthcare is excited to be hosting the 2nd Transition to Adulthood Pop-Up event on December 2-3, 2023, at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. This event aims to bring together youth, families, trainees, researchers, clinicians, and policy/decision makers to celebrate the best of what we are learning, and doing, to help young people to develop fully, even when they are challenged by health conditions. For those unable to join in-person, aspects of the event will be made available in a virtual format. This event is open to both Children's Healthcare Canada Annual Conference delegates and non-conference delegates; a discount will be applied to those who wish to attend both events.

Children's Healthcare Canada is excited to host everyone in person again, safely. We will continue to follow the advice of Public Health Agency of Canada as well as standards set forth by the venue and Vancouver Coastal Health to ensure the highest standards for our delegates, speakers and sponsors.

Registration for the Annual Conference and the pre-conference Transitions Pop-Up will open in September 2023!
