The CASN Canadian Nursing Virtual Education Conference 2021

Thank You

The CASN Canadian Nursing Virtual Education Conference 2021 will take place as follows:

Conference dates: May 3-5, 2021

Start Time: 11:00 a.m. EDT (Ontario/Quebec time) each day

End Time: between 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. EDT (Ontario/Quebec time) depending on the day


Note to individuals with oral or poster presentations: There will not be a “live” Q&A time scheduled during the conference, so you do not have to be available at any scheduled time. Rather, the pre-recorded oral presentations and posters will be posted on the virtual conference platform site, along with a link directly to the presenter’s email address. Conference attendees can view all oral presentations and posters “on demand” – i.e. 24/7 during the conference. They will also have access to view them for 60 days after the conference. If attendees have any questions/feedback, they can use the link to email the presenter directly.
