Welcome to the 28th Canadian Bioethics Society Annual Conference 2017!!

An important challenge facing health care providers and ethicists today is how to help clients who are at risk of "falling through the cracks" especially when health care budgets are shrinking and resources are scarce. It might be a prematurely discharged elderly woman who is put on a waiting list for homecare that never materializes. It might be a patient with a mental illness and medical needs that no long term care facility will accept because his behaviour is considered "too difficult".

This year’s conference will address the theme of intersecting vulnerabilities in all its complexity; from its conceptual foundations, to the need for practical responses. It will showcase tried and true as well as innovative ways of considering and addressing ethical issues associated with vulnerability.
