Invitation from the 2020 Organizing Committee


Dear Colleagues,

Please join us in Ottawa, on June 24 to 27, 2020 for the 95th Annual Conference of the Canadian Dermatology Association. Scheduled pre-conference meetings and events will be held on June 23.

Since Ottawa is Canada’s capital and home to much of the rich history of our great country there are many sights and attractions of interest. Standing on the picturesque bank of the Ottawa River, Ottawa has multiple cultural attractions, vast green spaces, and historic sites, including beautiful green Parliament Hill. With the downtown area being within walking distance to world class galleries, museums, cultural centres, renowned educational and research institutions, the Rideau Canal, and Byward Market, Ottawa is an ideal host city for our annual conference.

Created by dermatologists for dermatologists, the CDA Annual Conference is your opportunity to:

  • Learn about and contribute to the latest research and clinical approaches
  • Optimize practice areas of interest, and
  • Network with the dermatology community

The scientific program is a key element of the Annual Conference and plans are underway to bring you an exciting conference experience through notable speakers and programming platforms.

Your active participation in the conference will contribute to improving our specialty, from education to research, to clinical practice.

Please consider submitting an abstract for inclusion in the program as an oral, poster or subspecialty presentation. Please send in your submission by January 27, 2020.

We look forward to welcoming you to Ottawa in June!

Neil Shear, MD, FRCPC, FACP, FCDA
Chair, Annual Conference Committee
