This conference brings together key stakeholders including multidisciplinary professionals from nursing, psychology, psychiatry, social work, spiritual care, nutrition, medicine, rehabilitation medicine, occupational health and radiation therapy for both adult and pediatric populations. Together, we seek to explore, share, learn and discuss psychosocial and physical aspects of cancer. Participants include clinicians, researchers, educators in cancer care, and community-based organizations and patient representatives. Patients, caregivers and family members are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts that speak to their role in managing cancer experiences and care.
Psycho-oncology researchers, clinicians and patient representatives are invited to submit proposals to host pre-conference workshops.
Pre-conference workshops will be held on the morning of Tuesday, June 20, 2023. Workshops will be 3.5 hours in length. This includes one coffee break. Workshops will start at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 12:00 p.m. Each room will be equipped with a data projector and screen. Presenters are asked to bring their own laptop.
Although all topics and themes are welcome, we encourage workshops with a focus on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI), as well as patient-oriented sessions.
This year we are pleased to offer the opportunity for a select number of French language workshops. You will be asked in the submission if you would like consideration for French only or either French or English

Located at the center of it all, in the vibrant downtown's Quartier des Spectacles, DoubleTree by Hilton Montreal is the largest property connected to Palais des congrès, Complexe Desjardins and Place des Arts. Close to Old Montreal, Sainte-Catherine Street's shopping, the local food scene and steps away from Place des Festivals, DoubleTree Montreal is the hotel to live a true Montreal experience.
A mix of European culture and new-world cool, Montréal shines with creativity. Find inventive gastronomy (from Haitian griot to Breton kouign amann), iconic music (from Leonard Cohen to Arcade Fire), high-end fashion and the sophisticated charm of a trend-setting city. Whether it's the vibrant crimson red and golden yellow colours of fall or the offbeat sight of street art during the summer celebration of public murals, there’s always an artistic hum in this cosmopolitan city, from Mount Royal’s crest to the St. Lawrence River’s shore.
Try the Montreal musts
Montreal has several iconic foods you just can’t leave the city without trying.
To start, the smoked-meat sandwich. Juicy, tender, dripping with goodness, you can try a sandwich stacked with savoury meat at Schwartz’s Deli.
If you’ve never heard of poutine, it’s time you gave it a try. A tasty trifecta of cheese curds, chips, and gravy, you can get it “frilled up” with foie gras at Au Pied de Cochon, with lobster chunks at Le Garde-Manger, or choose from 30 different flavour variations from La Banquise.
And then there are Montreal bagels, whose deliciousness has caused even the proudest of New Yorkers to admit defeat, and bow down to the champs. Make sure you enjoy one of these sesame-seed coated creations fresh out of the wood-burning ovens of St-Viateur Bagel or Fairmount Bagel, two legendary bagel shops within a short walk of one another.
For full appreciation of the dazzling array of fresh local products—cheeses, meats, fish, breads, fruits, vegetables, and more—a trip to either the Jean-Talon Market or Atwater-Market is not only mouth-watering, but essential.
