Dorothy Wylie Health Leaders Institute – Postponed

The Dorothy Wylie Health Leaders Institute residential program scheduled for May 19 to May 22, 2020 in Toronto has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Canadian Nurses Association supports all regulated nurses who have a critical role to respond to this pandemic situation. Our nursing community must focus its attention and resources to the well being and care of Canadians during COVID-19.

CNA will contact registrants directly to provide further information regarding next steps.
