The Banff Wilderness Care Conference is an annual two day conference focuses on issues faced by medical care providers operating in the wilderness or other austere environments.  A well balanced event combining lecture style didactic sessions and outdoor workshops, provide participants an enjoyable yet informative event.  After our morning lecture series each day participants can choose multiple one hour workshop, or participate in a single immersive event that includes exploring parts of our historic Banff National Park.  Our content experts are well qualified and passionate about what they do, and they bring that passion to this event.  Our location in the Rocky Mountains provides an amazing venue, which includes winter and summer conditions allowing for workshops that range from avalanche rescue and snow shelters to water survival and mountain biking trips.  We are proudly one of Canada’s only opportunities for a wilderness conference experience.

**** COVID CHANGES****  For 2021 we are moving to an online format like so many other events.  However, this year we will be focusing on trying to provide "hands on" learning opportunities.  Workshops will be held using a online meeting platform and will be limited to a small number of participants (about 10).  Facilitators will walk you through the workshop demonstrating and providing 1 on 1 feedback to you and the group.  Workshops will be held from noon to 4pm on Saturday with a evening special presentation (round table, plenary lecture and film festival) from 4:30 till 9pm.  Sunday schedule will consist of workshops form 10am till 1pm potentially followed by an optional afternoon presentation.  We hope to move back to a live, in-person event in 2022.
