CNAR’s 16th Annual Conference welcomed over 900 delegates from coast to coast both online and in stunning Vancouver, British Columbia - setting yet another record for CNAR attendance! This year’s Conference was particularly special, as CNAR also celebrates its 20th Anniversary year.
CNAR 2023 addressed timely issues for regulators, with sessions on truth and reconciliation; diversity and inclusion; human resources; discipline; investigations; testing; governance; quality practice and continuing competence; performance measurement; and hot topics.

“We are so grateful to work with amazingly dedicated organizations and volunteers who have helped make CNAR a go-to resource for the Canadian regulatory community,” said Alyson Gaffney, Executive Director, CNAR. “The Conference has evolved over the years to become a must-attend event in Canadian regulation for networking, developing best practices, and learning that contributes to our shared goal of regulatory excellence.”
In the spirit of celebration, CNAR was extremely pleased to feature Rick Mercer, one of Canada’s most famous comics, who kicked off the in-person Conference on October 17th. His keynote entitled, Talking to Canadians, was inspired by his memoir of the same title.
CNAR also brought back our very well received CNAR TV, which featured livestream interviews during meals and breaks. All CNAR TV segments, as well as the regular session programming, are now available for replay to both virtual and in-person delegates for the next three months.
CNAR would also like to thank all speakers and sponsors who helped make the Conference such a success. “Attending the CNAR conference has been invaluable for Meazure Learning over the years,” said Danielle Geddes, VP of Enterprise Sales, Meazure Learning, CNAR's Premier sponsor. “It helps us connect directly with regulatory professionals, gaining deeper insights that help shape our solutions to better serve this important community. We’re grateful for the opportunity and value this conference provides.”
CNAR was very honoured to welcome delegates from across the nation to this very memorable Conference event.
From the CNAR staff & Board, thank you for making CNAR 2023 a success! We look forward to seeing you in Ottawa next year (October 7th - 9th)!
