By joining the CSS/SCS, you are supporting the on-going objectives of the society and joining your fellow sleep professional in these pursuits.

In recent years, the CSS/SCS has been busy with activities and initiatives including biennial scientific conferences, publications (on paediatric sleep, oral appliance use for sleep apnea, and portable PSG monitoring), insomnia rounds for physicians, patient information brochures in French and English, Continuing Education Credit and Medical Education Programs, and collaboration with the Canadian Sleep and Circadian Network on research funding and knowledge mobilization initiatives.

All new this year!

As a mean to increase access to sleep services and to help members increase the visibility of their sleep clinics or sleep services, the CSS has developed a searchable Provider Map which indicates geographic location and full address of the clinics or service. As of this year, with your membership, you can be listed on the map and have a space to describe your services and the population you serve. Take a look!
