FAQs

General

When COVID-19 was identified, the CCS began considering the impact of the pandemic on its operations including the annual Congress. After thoughtful discussions with CCC’s partners, stakeholders, and leaders, the CCS Executive Council and Congress Task Force Committee made the decision to transition CCC to a virtual congress experience – CCC 2020 Virtual.

We felt this was the best and safest course of action for our delegates and the CV community based on public health guidelines.

A virtual congress is hosted entirely over the Internet. Delegates will be able to participate and view sessions, some live, some pre-recorded, from their computers either from home or their office. In addition, sessions will be recorded and available for up to 12 months after the CCC 2020 Virtual is over should delegates purchase the all-access pass.

The Canadian Cardiovascular Congress will take place online on October 21 – 24, 2020.

It is much too early to make this decision. The CCS will continue to monitor the path that COVID-19 takes as well as public health guidelines and advisories. When the time comes, we will consult with CCC’s partners, stakeholders, and leaders, the CCS Executive Council and Congress Task Force Committee to make that decision.
