  4. 4. 3 An Invitation from the President Dear Colleagues, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the CDA Annual Conference. This conference is an ideal time to update your dermatology skills and spend time with friends and colleagues during the family social program. The conference offers the opportunity to learn about new techniques and therapeutic agents for patient care, and allows for discussion about personal experience and success stories. This year the CDA Conference will be held in Montreal. The Montreal committee, headed by Dr. Elizabeth O’Brien and her team: Dr. Danielle Marcoux , Dr. Catherine McCuaig, Dr. Alain Brassard and Dr. Antranik Benohanian, have produced a fantastic academic and social program. Montreal is always an interesting and exciting venue, and this year Quebec will be celebrating its 400th anniversary, which will add to the festivities. We are looking forward to seeing you and your families in Montreal. Jack Toole, MD, FRCPC President, Canadian Dermatology Association Greetings from the Montreal Conference Organizers The Canadian Dermatology Association invites you to Montreal for the 83rd Annual Conference being held June 27 to July 2, 2008. Plan to join us for a stimulating educational program, and jovial social activities for adults and children alike, while you experience the charm that is unique to Montreal. Be sure to discover and enjoy everything Montreal has to offer from the Old Port to the latest in shopping, dining, and jazz. Like Montreal, the conference will offer an exciting blend of the new and the historic with helpful updates and a chance to renew old acquaintances in the gracious surroundings of the most vibrant city in the country. We look forward to seeing you in Montreal for CDA 2008. Warm regards, Elizabeth O’Brien, MD, FRCPC Chair, 2008 Scientific Committee
  5. 5. 4 Host Hotel and City Important We would like to request your assistance and support of the Canadian Dermatology Association by booking your accommodations exclusively at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth. This hotel was chosen for the numerous benefits it offers the conference and its attendees. Accommodations reserved outside the CDA 2008 Annual Conference contracted conference block may seem less expensive but in reality it jeopardizes the benefits you enjoy as an attendee: Reduction in registration fees, costs for the conference, committees, and social activities as well as discounts on many of the items needed for the conference. Equally important is our ability to determine actual needs for future planning. If we don’t fill our block, CDA is exposed to paying monetary penalty fees, which may jeopardize the program in future years. Your loyalty and cooperation is greatly appreciated. The Montreal Jazz Festival is taking place over the conference dates and hotel rooms will be at a premium. We urge you to secure your room with the hotel TODAY.

We know how to diagnose and treat Basal Cell Ca, but are much less comfortable with SCC, due to its sometimes aggressive behaviour and tendency to metastasize. Despite its rising incidence and morbidity, there are few practical guidelines to offer support in making confident clinical decisions. This session, chaired by Dr. Manish Khanna, Mohs surgeon, and director of the McGill-Jewish General Hospital Dermatology-Oncology Clinic, will explore the difficulties associated with the growing problem of SCC and provide practical guidelines for dealing with this challenging tumour.

Helen’s Island in the Chenal Lemoyne and upstream against the Ste. Marie current. A delicious lunch and beverage will be served on board. After the cruise, you will visit the Pointe-à-Callière Museum where archaeological digs initiated more than 10 years ago, brought over 1000 years of history to light.

Headquarters of the Conseil des métiers d’art du Québec and the Institute of Design Montréal, the market houses 15 boutiques featuring top quality Quebec creations such as crafts, fashions, accessories and jewellery, design items, Quebec furniture and more.
