CTO Conference

The CTO Conference is a leading Canadian forum to drive innovation in clinical trials, including leaders from the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, academic and healthcare leaders, representatives from patient groups, health charities and research institutions.

This annual event provides a unique opportunity for members of our multi-stakeholder sector to collaborate, exchange knowledge and advance efforts to enhance the environment for clinical trials in Ontario and beyond.

Why Attend?

  • Network with a diverse group of peers from across the clinical trials community.
  • Hear from an international delegation of speakers who share their insights on key conversations and innovations within clinical trials.
  • Learn about and share best practices and emerging trends in clinical trials.
  • Spark new ideas and partnerships to help you move your next clinical trial forward.


I want to see what’s being done here in Canada and also understand how that’s being applied globally.

#CTO2020: Cancelled

Due to the ongoing situation surrounding COVID-19, CTO made the difficult decision to cancel the CTO 2020 conference. Facilitating knowledge exchange within our community is central to Clinical Trials Ontario’s mission of strengthening the environment for conducting high-quality clinical trials. In light of this year’s extraordinary circumstances, we are committed to hosting an expanded, three-day conference in 2021 that will include many of the sessions outlined in our 2020 agenda as well as new sessions and speakers. Please save the date for March 23 – 25, 2021 at the Hilton Toronto, where we hope to see you in person.
