AMMI Canada and CACMID are pleased to invite you to THE Canadian annual meeting in infectious diseases and microbiology. The 2019 AMMI Canada – CACMID Annual Conference will take place in Ottawa, ON, from April 3-6, and promises another great program!

New to this year’s annual conference, in lieu of an event app, we have created an Online Conference Program. The online program is made up of all session details. All sessions identify the speaker, the objectives along with the location and time of the session.
