2017 marks the sesquicentennial for Canada. Canada is celebrating 150 years of Confederation! Join us at the DIA Annual Canadian Meeting as we explore how Canada’s past has shaped the Canadian health care ecosystem of today and tomorrow. 

The DIA Annual Canadian Meeting will reflect on the evolution of Canada's health system by bringing together key thought leaders from industry, academia, regulators, and Health Canada. Expert speakers will discuss in-depth how collaboration can support new regulatory processes, innovation, and access, as well as trends in clinical research and operations, and developing transparency and engagement initiatives.

This year’s meeting will feature preconference short courses, plenary sessions, multi-track breakout sessions tailored to the beginner, intermediate, and advanced level professional, and multiple networking opportunities.
NEW! This year the DIA Annual Canadian Meeting will be co-located with DIA's Canadian Pharmacovigilance and Risk Management Conference. Maximize your education and time by attending both!

Approved by the Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society for 12 RAC credits.

While our meeting is currently in development, check out last year’s program to see what’s in store!
