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 27, 2018.

Saturday, October 27, 2018 - French presentations from Montreal - click here for more information.

Note: The Montreal National Conference will be live streamed from 8:30 am until 12:00 pm EST. All presentations from Montreal will be in French.

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 with closing remarks at 4:00 pm EST.

Plenary sessions begin at 8:45 am EST, with a break from 10:55 am - 11:10 am. The morning plenary sessions end at 12:00 pm EST. After lunch, breakout sessions begin at 1:10 pm. Only three breakout sessions will be live streamed. 

  • cannabis and brain tumours 
  • for parents 
  • for people diagnosed with a non-malignant brain tumour

Following the breakout sessions, live streaming will begin again at 3:05 pm until 4:00 pm EST when the Conference will conclude.


All live streaming participants will have the opportunity to submit questions, plus we plan to follow-up with conference participants after the conference with responses from our presenters and post Frequently Asked Questions on this website.  Please note, we will not be able to answer any medical questions specific to your situation.

If you missed the presentations, all sessions (with the exception of the session on Sexuality) were recorded and will be available on our website in the coming weeks. 

There are recordings of the 2017 and 2016 presentations.

Eyes might be the window to the soul, but in Hayden’s case, they were telling her Mom that something was seriously wrong with her baby. Hayden’s Mom, Candice, is forever grateful to the ER physician who spotted her brain tumour and the health care professional team who subsequently saved her eyesight. Candice is now advocating for every parent to look to the eyes.
