SIM-one and the Canadian Network for Simulation in Healthcare (CNSH) are integrating to form a new national simulation network. Building upon the established successes, events and services of SIM-one and CNSH, the new network will support the advancement and sustainability of simulation in Canada.

Since 2010, we have reached incredible milestones to advance and support simulation: secured government investments in simulation, created a community of passionate simulationists, established Canada’s premier annual simulation conferences, and launched unique global online resources to support simulationists and foster collaboration. Learn more in our Value Infographic.
