The Canadian Reception at HIMSS, hosted by the HIMSS Ontario Chapter and ITAC Health, has become the Signature Social Event for Canadians and their guests that are attending HIMSS. As in the years past, there will be complimentary hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar and there is no charge to attend – all are welcome – we look forward to seeing you there. For those companies looking for sponsoring opportunities, the Canadian Reception has proven to be a worthwhile investment.

 What past participants have to say about the Canadian Reception @ HIMSS…

“Given the size of HIMSS as an event, the Canadian Reception has always been the best opportunity for me to meet with my familiar Canadian peers as well as provide a friendly environment to meet new ones.”  Mike Barron, President and CEO at Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Health Information (NLCHI)


“What a terrific opportunity to re-connect with friends and colleagues from across the country and make new acquaintances with the new up-and-comers entering the Canadian health IT industry – great venue.”  Jim Shave, President, Cerner Canada


“In years’ past, I found that the Canadian reception is like an oasis in the vastness of HIMSS – of familiar faces sharing reflections as well as welcome refreshments while discussing the differences between the Canadian and US healthcare environment. The reception provided that connection to friends and colleagues which helped me to further appreciate the incredible collaboration and commitment we have in Canada around our great healthcare asset.” Lydia Lee, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, University Health Network


“I have attended the Canadian reception at HIMSS for many years. This in an event that allows you to reconnect with all your colleagues and vendors from all across Canada.  This is the #1 reception to schedule.” Diane Salois- Swallow, CIO at Mackenzie Health, Southlake Regional Health Centre and Stevenson Memorial Hospital


"The one thing I look forward to everyone year when heading to the US for the HIMSS conference is attending the Canadian Reception.  It is a fantastic way to connect with other fellow Canadians as well as a way to bring American and International guests to the event to discuss what is happening in Canada and exchange ideas.   Anyone who is attending from Canada should consider this a "must attend" event and I would encourage others from outside of Canada to attend as well".  Glenn Lanteigne, CEO, Tectonic & Director, COACH Board

"McKesson is proud to support the Canadian reception at HIMSS.  Bringing together all the Canadians at the event creates a wonderful camaraderie and provides a great chance to connect with partners and customers from across the country."  David Mosher, Director, RelayHealth
