Welcome to the CNS 2020 Annual Conference in Edmonton, Alberta 

The CNS Annual Conference will take place from May 7-9, 2020 at the Edmonton Convention Centre  in Edmonton, AB. 

This year's conference marks CNS's 10th Anniversary since its launch in 2010 after the merger between the Canadian Society for Clinical Nutrition and the Canadian Society for Nutritional Sciences. CNS was in Edmonton for its first ever annual conference, and we are back again to celebrate this important milestone in 2020.  There will be a lot of sharing of memories and stories about our past and through the years. We hope you will join us as we reminisce and celebrate!

The CNS Annual Conference is a forum for the presentation of scientific research spanning basic, regulatory/policy, clinical and community nutrition research. It offers an exceptional learning environment and brings together a range of expertise, including food and nutrition researchers, healthcare professionals, opinion leaders, industry representatives, government officials, and future leaders.

Our conference program is dynamic, and brings some of the best expertise together to offer a high quality learning experience for all of our delegates. This is tied to great opportunities to view new research through our Poster and Oral presentations, our exhibition, as well as the chance to be inspired by some of our exceptional award winners.

About Edmonton

"Welcome to Edmonton. We throw axes for fun, barbecue in blizzards and camp with bison. From the continent's first, biggest and wildest Fringe Theatre Festival to a shopping mall that spans over 48 city blocks, Edmontonians have never been afraid to do things a little differently. Normal is for the other guys."
