The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) is pleased to invite you Back to the Beginning to the 2017 Annual General Meeting hosted in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The 2017 edition of the CSEP Conference pays homage to the inaugural AGM hosted in Winnipeg during the 1967 Pan American Games. We are honoured to celebrate 50 years of health, fitness, and high performance research excellence by welcoming health professionals from all over Canada Back to the Beginning.


John Sutton Lecture:  Dr. Michael Joyner
APNM Presidents’ Lecture: Dr. Kevin Shoemaker - in Honour of Richard Hughson
Health and Fitness Professionals’ Annual Lecture: Dr. Stephen Cheung - in Honour of Gord Sleivert
History of CSEP:  Dr. Phillip Gardiner

The majority of exercise scientists in Canada attend this meeting along with a large proportion of their graduate students; and, we anticipate that the conference will also attract a substantial number of CSEP Certified Exercise Physiologists® and CSEP Certified Personal Trainers®.
