Social events

Please join us for a glass of cheer and help us celebrate the 2015 COS Annual Meeting. These events are great opportunities to network with our international speakers, special guests, sponsors, and exhibitors. Renew old acquaintances and make new friends with colleagues from across Canada.

To allow our delegates more time to “gala”vant and take in the beautiful sights of Victoria, we will not be hosting a Celebration Gala event at this year’s meeting. However, please find below some of the other exciting social events we have planned.
