IPOS 2022: WORLD CONGRESS REIMAGINING PSYCHOSOCIAL ONCOLOGY: EMBRACING VOICES FROM AROUND THE WORLD
TORONTO, CANADA • AUGUST 29 - SEPTEMBER 1, 2022
The shared mission of the Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology (CAPO) and the International Psycho-Oncology Society (IPOS) is to foster the science and practice of psychosocial oncology to improve the care for people affected by cancer through partnerships, research, public policy, advocacy and education.
Our 2022 World Congress will create an opportunity to bring together an international body of health care professionals. This forum encourages new global partnerships and allows for the dissemination of ground-breaking research to professionals and the general public about psycho-oncology, that is, the psychosocial (psychiatric, psychological, social, behavioural, ethical) and psychobiological aspects of oncology. Finally, this forum allows us to recognize exceptional contributions from around the world to the field of psycho-oncology through our awards of excellence.

GATEWAY TO CANADA
It’s easy to get to Toronto. Choose from one of 2 international airports that connect travellers to the rest of the country and beyond. It’s also easy to get around Toronto, thanks to its extensive public transit system and fleet of taxis. Once you’re here, it’s hard to leave because you won’t want to.
Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) is Canada’s primary airport and the 2nd busiest in North America, with travel connections to every continent. It ranks among the top 30 world airports for passenger traffic and aircraft movement and is less than a 90-minute flight for over 100 million Americans. The UP Express train quickly connects Toronto Pearson to the downtown core by a 25-minute direct transfer.
Located in the downtown core is Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ). A smaller airport, Billy Bishop offers flights to over 20 cities in Canada and the U.S., with connections to more than 80 international destinations. It’s easily accessible by a 5-minute ferry ride or through its underground pedestrian tunnel.
DIVERSITY IS SERVED
Delicious. Diverse. Dynamic. Toronto knows a thing or two about cuisine! World-renowned chefs, 5-star dining, restaurants with jaw-dropping views – this is what you can expect when booking a table in Canada’s Downtown.
