 IFOS 2021 Vancouver

The unprecedented events over the past nine months have challenged all of us, including the committee organizing IFOS 2021 Vancouver. The local organizing committee, the IFOS Board, and the Canadian Society of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery have been assessing the ongoing global pandemic and its potential impact on you as attendees, your families, and your communities.

While we look forward to showcasing Vancouver, we have made the difficult decision to postpone IFOS 2021 Vancouver. It will now be IFOS 2022 Vancouver from June 18 - 22, 2022. Attendees can expect the same great educational and social meeting in 2022. More information can be obtained from our website in early 2021. https://twitter.com/ifosvancouver
