Present at Cannexus

Planning for Cannexus, Canada's Career Development Conference, in January 2022, is now underway. Cannexus22 is expected to be a hybrid conference with a live in-person and virtual portion. More information about the format and schedule will be available in the coming months.

CERIC invites individuals or organizations with an interest in presenting at the 16th annual Cannexus to submit a brief session outline for consideration using the Proposal Form and encourages you to inform colleagues or students of this opportunity.  

Submitting a proposal is not a commitment to present at the conference. If you submit a proposal and you are selected to present, you will receive a formal email invitation by the summer – with further details on session type, duration and whether in-person or virtual – and at that time you will be given a deadline to accept or decline the invitation. 

The Call for Presenters for Cannexus22 is now closed.

The deadline to submit a Proposal was Thursday, June 3, 2021.

Please read the Guidelines and Terms of Presenting before proceeding to the Proposal Form.

You will gain recognition as an expert and leader in the field at the conference and beyond. We expect participants from across Canada and internationally. In the past, our live conferences have drawn more than 1,200 delegates and our virtual conference more than 2,300.
