Canadian Anaesthesiologists Society

With a total membership of 5 people, CAS started its journey in the early year of 1943. Prof HR Griffith became the first President of the society and thus CAS began its functioning. It held its first meeting in Toronto on 24 May 1944. The CAS became the brand ambassador of national specialty society for anaesthesiology in Canada. What started as a not-for-profit, voluntary organization became leader and excellence-bearer in anaesthesiology, perioperative care, and patient safety.

It represents 3,000 members all over Canada and the world and is devoted to endorsing brilliance in patient care through research, education and advocacy. The Annual Meeting is the largest anaesthesia meeting in Canada with more than 1000 attendees. In 2011 the Society also received the Royal College Accredited CPD Provider Award.
