#CASC2019     #MakingWaves

Hosted by:


We invite you to join us May 8 to 10, 2019 at the CASC Annual Conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

CASC’s 17th Annual Conference is expected to welcome over 150 delegates from across our country. This three-day conference, hosted by the Discovery Centre , features pre-conference activities, engaging learning sessions, keynote speakers, and events that include a welcome reception, a trade-show and our National CASCADE Awards Gala. 

This year's CASC conference theme is Making Waves.

Figuratively, “making waves” is all about creating a lasting impression, having a resounding impact, and instigating change.

It is essential to innovation and without it, Science and Technology would simply not exist.
