BHPC Program Events

BHPC’s annual events program is organized by the BHPC Events Committee. Due to COVID-19, we have scaled back our events program for 2020-2021 in order to focus on delivery of our core courses. Tentative details about events for this year will be posted here as we confirm dates. To keep informed of BHPC events, contact our Program Coordinator to be added to our email list. We also maintain a calendar of other events of potential interest to the BHPC community in the Toronto area.
