Welcome to CDDW™-CLM 2024

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the Joint 2024 Canadian Digestive Diseases Week™ and Canadian Liver Meeting Conference, taking place March 1-3, 2024 in Toronto, Ontario.

As was last year, the Conference will be another joint effort between the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology and the Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver, as well as their affiliates the Canadian Network on Hepatitis C, Canadian NASH Network, Canadian Association of Hepatology Nurses, and TRIANGLE. Attendees will have full access to two distinct conferences – CDDW™ and CLM – as well as exceptional Symposia and programming such as the Gastroenterology Resident in Training Course and Research Topics program at the same time and under a single roof. We’re also so excited about the numerous opportunities for delegates from across the GI and hepatology communities to come together for shared networking and social events as part of the collaborative Conference.

The second delivery of the Joint 2024 CDDW™-CLM Conference will be the premiere meeting for all members of the Canadian gastroenterology and hepatology communities including trainees, nurses and researchers with an interest in liver and gastroenterology.

Posters and trainee involvement will continue to be the cornerstone to the meeting, providing the latest research in gastroenterology and hepatology from across Canada with a daily poster session that will enable delegates to engage live with poster presenters. The Conference will showcase more than 400 abstracts and three days of lectures on the latest advances in research, medicine, and technology. The Conference also provides an opportunity for professionals in the field to discuss the medical, technological, ethical, regulatory and legal issues facing the profession today.

The Canadian perspective on liver and gastrointestinal disease research is necessary to address clinical practice concerns unique to Canada’s demographics, geography, and epidemiological trends; this must include specific attention to priority populations including Indigenous peoples. Our program will provide this Canadian perspective on liver and gastroenterology, stressing our combined ongoing commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and a revitalized commitment to climate change action.

Highlights of the 2024 Conference will include the high-profile plenary presentations, small group discussions, an extended menu of workshops, including the Hands-On session, a Small Intestine Ultrasound Workshop and a Fibroscan Workshop, as well as an enhanced version of the Mentorship Café. The Presidents’ Gala is a natural opportunity to enjoy an evening of networking, fun and live music.

Whether one works in patient care, research, education, administration, or the broader industry in general, our program offers something for everyone.
