Conference Program

The 2018 CFHS National Animal Welfare Conference is set to take place at the Hyatt Regency Calgary April 21-24, 2018.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS IS NOW CLOSED! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO APPLIED!

We are happy to report that we received more abstracts this year than in any previous year. As such, the Program Committee will need additional time to sift through the applications and determine which will be accepted for the 2018 National Animal Welfare Conference. Decisions are expected to be delivered in mid-November.
