Clinical Trials Colloquium

The CVC Clinical Trials Colloquium first began in 2014 when Dr. Paul Armstrong (CVC Founding Director) and Tracy Temple (Associate Director, Clinical Trials), brought together 13 Canadian investigative sites to help:

  • Identify major impediments to timely and efficient participation in clinical trials.
  • Understand how best to add value to the clinical trial experience.
  • Establish a network of high performing sites across Canada.

The Colloquium continues to be an excellent opportunity for the CVC, our sponsors, and sites across Canada to connect, collaborate, and find solutions to key issues affecting clinical research in Canada.
