Events 

WCHRI hosts a wide range of events for our members, ranging from networking and mentoring to very practical, hands-on demonstrations of tools for research. Our trainees and researchers continue to develop innovative and novel ideas, and their skills form the basis for the advancement in care in our province. We have therefore developed numerous mechanisms by which to help our researchers and trainees throughout their programs and beyond and to provide varied and useful seminars and workshops to enhance their programs. If you have any suggestions for events that you feel would be helpful, we would love to hear them. In these pages you will find information about our current and past events.
