The Canadian Anesthesiologists' Society
The Canadian Anesthesiologists' Society (CAS) is the national specialty society for anesthesiology in Canada. The CAS was founded in 1943 as a not-for-profit, voluntary organization and is guided by its vision of innovative leadership and excellence in anesthesiology, perioperative care, and patient safety.
The CAS represents 3,000 members (anesthesiologists, GP anesthetists, residents, Anesthesia Assistants, etc.) across Canada and around the world and is dedicated to promoting excellence in patient care through research, education, and advocacy. Our Annual Meeting is the largest anesthesia meeting in Canada with 1,000+ attendees. In 2011 the Society proudly received the Royal College Accredited CPD Provider Award.
