Industry Collaborator Program
Engage with Canada’s simulation community as we build a new national network!
Associate your brand with the evolution of simulation in Canada, plus access exclusive services and benefits!
Simulation Canada (formerly SIM-one and the Canadian Network for Simulation in Healthcare) have integrated 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, and expand the use, scope and quality of simulation nationally.
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.
