Past Conferences

Northwestern Ontario Regional Wound Care and Limb Preservation Conference

We were so thrilled to bring “care closer to home” at the Northwestern Ontario Regional Wound Care and Limb Preservation Conference for the first time in over a decade.

Northwestern Ontario spans over 500,000 sq. kilometers and is home to 150,000 lakes, rivers, and streams, built on the shore of Lake Superior, on the traditional lands of Fort William First Nation, signatory to the Robinson Superior Treaty of 1850.

This event aimed to unite clinicians in the unique wound care and limb preservation field by providing two and a half days of accredited and non-accredited education, knowledge sharing, and networking. The conference was held in person at the Delta Marriott in Thunder Bay on June 2-4, 2023.

We will be announcing the date for the conference to be held in 2024 soon.
