We are a not-for-profit organization that connects the simulation community, facilities, and resources across Canada and beyond. We advocate for and advance simulated learning in health professions education for the benefit of patient care and safety.

In addition, we host a number of free, online services that are open to simulationists and health professionals across the globe. This includes the SIM Scenario ExchangeTM for peer-reviewed simulation scenarios and tools, the SIM MarketplaceTM for the buying and selling of gently-used simulation equipment, the SIM Product Directory, and more.

We are also the proud host behind Canada’s premier healthcare simulation events, the annual SIM Expo (our flagship conference) and the National Forum on Simulation for Quality and Safety.
