Embracing a collaborative and inclusive approach and in partnership with dental and medical colleagues and organizations, CAHD will advance safe, accessible, ethical and evidence-based oral health care in our complex health system.

    AGM Vancouver 2020 Cancelled


    Dear Colleagues,

    Due to the rapidly evolving and uncertain nature of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have made the decision to cancel CAHD’s National Meeting, scheduled for June 5-6, 2020 in Vancouver.

    This was a difficult decision as our National Meeting has and will continue to be a central component of CAHD and a tremendous opportunity for meeting our colleagues from across the country to share ideas, expertise and experiences. However, the health, safety, and professional obligations of our community is our top priority.

    We understand that some of you have made arrangements to attend. You will need to work directly with travel or accommodations providers to cancel your arrangements related to the conference. We apologize for this inconvenience and hope that you will return to the National Meeting in 2021.

    If you have further questions regarding the conference, please contact


    Debbie Fonseca, Site Host CAHD Vancouver 2020
    on behalf of the CAHD Board of Directors
