Better Breathing Conference

Better Breathing Conference

The Better Breathing Conference is one of Canada’s largest and longest-running respiratory education events. What started as an event for healthcare professionals has evolved into a multi-stream conference that improves lung care through innovative and empowering sessions for healthcare providers and patients alike. The Better Breathing Conference happens each year in January.

The sponsors who made it possible

What’s new for 2021?

  • For the first time in 38 years, our programming spans an entire week. Whether you register for all of our sessions or just a few, you’ll have access to the same great networking opportunities you’d expect from one of the largest and longest-running respiratory events in Canada.
  • Each day of the conference will be dedicated to a specific area of lung health – helping you improve the way you deliver asthma, COPD, and lung cancer care, and helping you reach your patients with important messages about the dangers of infectious disease (hello, COVID-19!) and smoking/vaping.
  • We’re bringing the spirit of the Better Breathing Conference to patients and caregivers with special new sessions just for them!
