The health and safety of our attendees and communities is our top priority. With the current situation in mind, we are working on a backup plan for a virtual congress. Whatever the final decision, we will ensure there is plenty of time for our community and partners to plan accordingly. Thank you for your continued patience and support while we plan the congress.

Welcome to the World Congress of Intensive & critical care 2021

The Canadian Critical Care Society and the Canadian Association of Critical Care Nurses are excited to host you at the 15th Congress of the World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine in Vancouver from September 11 to 15, 2021.

Together with our global colleagues, our interdisciplinary partners, and our patients, we will bring our uniquely Canadian collaborative culture and spirit to all aspects of the World Congress. Canadian and international groups, such as the Canadian Critical Care Trials Group, the International Forum of Acute Care Trialists (InFACT), and the Global Sepsis Alliance, will ensure scientific excellence. The program will be inclusive and diverse, and it integrates the topic of critical care in challenging environments.

The Congress will take place downtown in the Vancouver Convention Centre that was built for the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games with a dramatic mountain and ocean backdrop. Vancouver is one of the most attractive cities in the world with many activities available and ideal climate in September. Before and following the Congress, you will be able to enjoy the beauty of British Columbia and beyond.

We promise you a congress to remember and a springboard for the future of collaborative global Intensive & Critical Care Medicine.
