Canadian Immunization Conference

December 1 - December 3

Canadian Immunization Conference

December 1-3, 2020

Shaw Centre

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada


Immunization protects individuals and communities by preventing the spread of disease. As more people are immunized, the disease risk for everyone is reduced. Immunization has probably saved more lives in Canada in the last 50 years than any other health intervention. Immunization is the single most cost-effective health investment, making it a cornerstone in the effort to promote health.

The ongoing occurrence of vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks makes CIC 2020 an important venue to discuss the recurrence and emergence of infectious diseases that are posing challenges for public health at all levels. Critical to our degree of preparedness are an ability to continue to develop and improve vaccines, strengthen public health surveillance systems, and support timely and practice-relevant immunization program research, as well as an encouraging of evidence-based and ethical policy and practice measures to help us better control infectious diseases and improve public confidence in vaccines.

From December 1-3, 2020, over 900 delegates will connect, collaborate, share and learn, the innovative scientific program will engage and inspire future research, policies and practices. To facilitate knowledge exchange and engagement, the Organizing Committee engages with experts and thought-provoking speakers who will inspire and challenge delegates.
