CNAR 2024 Annual National Conference: Call for Speakers Now Open!

Updated: Mar 25

Secure your speaking slot at the premier event in Canadian professional self-regulation! CNAR is currently seeking speaking proposals for its 17th Annual National Conference, which will take place October 8th and October 9th, 2024 online and in Ottawa, Ontario. (Conference workshop programming will be offered on October 7th.) CNAR 2024 is committed to presenting diverse topics and learning opportunities for both beginner and advanced regulators from all across Canada. CNAR welcomes speakers who can share their experience in professional self-regulation, whether ground-breaking successes or crises that resulted in lessons learned. Proposals from both within and outside CNAR’s member and Partner community are welcome.

Please note: the 2024 Conference Planning Committees will review every valid and complete 

proposal. The decision will be made according to:

Completeness: Submissions including “TBDs” with regard to content or Speakers will not be sent to the Committee for consideration. Ensure your session description is clear, concise, and has an easily comprehensible key message.

Originality: Topics not widely discussed within the regulatory community at other conferences or presented by the same speaker at other conferences will be more highly rated.

Level of Interest to Target Audience: Presentation suggestions should be compelling, current, and relevant to the Canadian regulatory community.

Topic: Topic should be compelling and applicable on a national level and/or across regulatory professions.

Vendors: Vendors should be partnered with a regulator whenever possible.

Geography: CNAR is looking for content representing regulators from across Canada.

Panel Presentations: CNAR delegates want to hear from various organizations and appreciate different perspectives. Panel presentations and discussions are considered stronger by the Committee than single presenters.

Diversity: CNAR is looking for geographic and professional diversity, as well as minority voices.

Questions about CNAR 2024 can be directed to Alana Coleman at

The deadline to submit a proposal is Monday, March 18, 2024.
