All Day

Join us in Ottawa, Canada on June 4-5 2018 for the Canadian European Trade Assembly for Digital Health. This international conference is hosted by the Canadian Integrated Health Alliance (; in partnership with the European Connected Health Alliance(, and is designed to connect Canadian, American and European stakeholders in the rapidly emerging fields of digital health and social care.

Impetus for the meeting is the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement – the recently ratified free-trade agreement between Canada, the European Union and its member states. As it goes into force this year, CETA will eliminate 98% of the tariffs between Canada and the EU.

The Ottawa conference will explore how free trade can accelerate the transnational exchange of information, products and services between European and Canadian digital healthcare organizations.

Our goal is to provide a neutral platform to encourage collaboration between government, academic medicine and industry to find solutions to complex issues around digital interoperability standards, data governance, 2nd use of health-data and digital transformation & change management.

A wide spectrum of health and social care stakeholders will attend. Several trade delegations from Europe and American wish to connect with Canadian Life Science technology firms to expand their markets. In addition to one-on-one ‘Match-Maker’ sessions, the Ottawa accelerator community will be present to help start-ups connect with funding, resources and market access.
