9th Annual Embryology Summit


The Canadian Embryology Summit is in its 9th year! We are excited to announce this is now a CFAS Event and are pleased to open registration for the 2020 Summit, to be held at the Hilton Toronto Airport Conference Centre, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on Saturday, November 14th, 2020

With the COVID-19 virus being declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, we regret to inform you we have postponed the Embryology Summit. The Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society considers the health of our speakers, exhibitors, and members of utmost importance. This is especially significant considering a number of our members work in hospitals and clinics where the health of patients could also be impacted should someone contract the virus. So far only one measure has been shown to be effective against the coronavirus: social distancing. Therefore, we have decided it is ultimately safer to wait to host our events. 
We are still finalizing details of the postponed events and, as our members, you will be the first to be informed once known. We appreciate your patience as we sort this out and look forward to hosting these events in the fall. We hope to see you at these events on their rescheduled dates!
Registrations will be transferred and applied to the new date. In the event that you can no longer attend the event at the rescheduled time, please provide the office with written notice of the cancellation and a request for refund no later than 30 days prior to the rescheduled event date. We are certainly disappointed and do apologize for the inconvenience. However, the health and safety of all of us holds greater value.
Please stay tuned for more information.
Thank you for understanding!
