Welcome 2020-03-17T22:44:25+00:00


The 9th Canadian Hypertension Congress will be held September 24 to 26, 2020 in Montreal, Quebec — the largest conference of its kind, designed to meet the needs and expectations of scientists, researchers, and clinicians. We are delighted to invite you to be part of its success!

Over three days, through presentations, debates, and discussions, we showcase cutting-edge research abstracts, address knowledge gaps head-on, and inspire innovation through open exchange to drive improved health outcomes for people living with hypertension. Responding to the primary care community’s needs, this year’s theme will focus on Guidelines knowledge translation. Our Primary Care track addresses the most-requested topics in hypertension and adjacent conditions for whole patient care:

  • Cardiovascular Disease (Stroke, Heart Failure, Atrial Fibrillation)
  • Dementia
  • Diabetes
  • Thresholds & Targets
  • Kidney Disease
  • Obesity

This Congress brings together leading minds across disciplines and specialties: more than 350 of Canada’s leading hypertension scientists and researchers, specialists, physicians, pharmacists, nurses, dietitians, health experts, and public health officials. Leading into the Congress, on September 23, our 3rd Young Investigator Forum will provide trainees with knowledge and skills development to best equip them for a bright future in hypertension.

Abstract submissions and registration opens January 24, 2020.

We hope you’ll join us!
