Cannexus25 Call for Presenters

About Cannexus25

Planning for Cannexus, Canada’s Career Development Conference, in January 2025, is now underway. Cannexus25 will be a hybrid conference – both in-person in Ottawa and virtual. The dates for the conference are January 27-29, 2025.


CERIC invites individuals or organizations with an interest in presenting at Cannexus25 to submit a brief session outline for consideration using the Proposal Form and encourages you to inform colleagues or students of this opportunity.


Submitting a proposal is not a commitment to present at the conference. If you submit a proposal and you are selected to present, you will receive a formal email invitation by August – with further details on session type, duration and whether in-person or virtual – and at that time you will be given a deadline to accept or decline the invitation.


Submission Deadline

Your submission must be received no later than 11:59 pm ET, Friday, May 31, 2024 to be considered for inclusion in the Cannexus25 conference program. Any late proposals will be automatically added to a waitlist for consideration if spots become available.
