2020 CNA Biennial Convention

CNA is closely monitoring developments related to COVID-19. At this point, our pre-convention leadership workshops, annual meeting of members and biennial convention are proceeding as planned. We will send out a notice to participants and post updated information if anything changes.

Ottawa, Shaw Centre
June 23-24, 2020 (convention follows the annual meeting of members on June 22)

The theme for CNA’s 2020 biennial convention is Take Care of Nurses to Take Charge of Health. Because the well-being of nurses is essential to building effective health systems, the convention will be full of inspirational ideas, conversations and practical strategies for ensuring the nursing profession is ready to deliver quality care. Abstracts will be presented in one of four different formats.

We’re focusing on nurses’ health in part because the World Health Organization has declared 2020 to be the Year of the Nurse and Midwife in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.


We’re developing an exciting lineup of events, including speakers, interactive sessions, nurse-led presentations and a leadership workshop.
