Our goal is to create a platform for the sharing of best practices in navigation as well as for knowledge translation and exchange.

The inaugural Canadian Healthcare Navigation Conference (CHNC) will be hosted in partnership between NaviCare/SoinsNavi at the University of New Brunswick in Saint John and the Family Navigation Project at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto.

Our keynote speakers are Harold P Freeman, M.D. (Founder and President of the Harold P. Freeman Patient Navigation Institute in New York City), and Ms. Keli Anderson (President & CEO of FamilySmart in Vancouver BC).

In order to create opportunities for the involvement of individuals with lived experience (i.e., patients and families) at our conference, we will be offering a limited number of registration subsidies to support attendance. These subsidies will be offered through an application process, and will be reviewed by the conference organizing committee. To apply for a registration subsidy, please contact: for more details.
