Governor's Message

The ACP Western Chapters meeting with the Rocky Mountain GIM Meeting was another success. Next years' meeting will be held in collaboration with the CSIM October 10-13, 2018 in Banffplan to attend!

In October, the Canadian Chapters were pleased to play host to the ACP's Board of Governors meeting which was held in Montreal. Physicians from around the world attended, and we were proud to have the opportunity to highlight Canadian culture.
