WinterCAPS 2023 will be taking place at the Marriott Eaton Centre Downtown Hotel February 27-28, 2023. All CAPS members are welcome to register for the meeting.
WinterCAPS takes place every other year with a purpose of discussing the "business" of CAPS focussing on issues currently relevant to the Association.
The 2023 WinterCAPS meeting will focus on "The Future of CAPS" as it is evident, post COVID, that priorities and interests of the membership have changed, especially for the early and mid-career Pediatric Surgeons who ARE the future of CAPS. We ask that each Canadian centre ensure that at least one member of their group attends and that at least one of the attendees be an early to mid-career surgeon. The meeting will be in-person with the exception of a hybrid session on the 27th (exact timing to be determined). There will be an early start each day to maximize the time we have together. There will be a short (roughly 2 hour) morning session on February 27 that will be virtual and allow input from those who could not attend in person. We will plan to be finished by noon on the 28th to allow attendees to travel home.
WinterCAPS 2023 Registration is open on the CAPS website www.caps.ca. Log on to the member page and then on the top ribbon pick member and there is a drop down for the meeting. The registration fee is used to cover an evening event on February 27 for all attendees. Please register early as we need an attendance count for the hotel meeting room layout, food and refreshments.
