National Conference Live Streaming

While we hope that many people will be able to attend the Brain Tumour National Conference in person, we recognize that is simply not possible for everyone. To ensure the Conference is accessible to Canadians across the country, we will broadcast sessions via live streaming on Saturday, October 20, 2018 and the French presentations on Saturday, October 28, 2017.

Saturday, October 20, 2018 - English presentations from Toronto - see conference agenda

Note: The Toronto Brain Tumour National Conference will be live streamed from 8:45 am until 4:30 pm EST.

Plenary sessions begin at 8:45 am EST, with a break from 10:10 am - 10:30 am. The morning plenary sessions end at 12:10 pm EST. After lunch, breakout sessions begin at 1:15 pm. Only three breakout sessions will be live streamed.
