The CAPM&R 66th Annual Scientific Meeting will be held on May 30 – June 2 in Whitehorse, Yukon.  The conference will be held at the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre, situated on the banks of the Chu Nínkwän (Yukon River). The Cultural Centre is a place where they celebrate the heritage and contemporary way of life of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation. “As our ancestors did for thousands of years, we welcome visitors from near and afar to gather in our cultural home to share stories and experiences.

This year, two different pre-course options are available. Only one is included in the conference package.

The CMPA Simulation (Section 3 Credits) pre-course is held on Tuesday, May 29, in Dawson City. The reason for this change in location is that it was believed that delegates may wish to explore Dawson therefore we are making it an education opportunity. It will require individuals to also book travel to/from Dawson City. A charter flight with Air North is available and tickets can be purchased in advance. Those attending the Dawson City course will travel back to Whitehorse on Wednesday morning. A maximum of 50 spots are available for this course.
