Join our passionate, interprofessional healthcare simulation community and world-leading experts at the 2019 SIM Expo! The 2019 SIM Expo will be held on October 21-22 in Montréal, Québec, Canada, at the Hôtel Bonaventure.

Who is the SIM Expo for?

Each year, the SIM Expo brings together healthcare leaders in university, college, hospital, emergency services, and community care sectors. Our participants are deans, administrators, educators, clinicians, SIM centre managers and directors, and researchers from all health professions.

What makes SIM Expo special?

The SIM Expo prides itself on its strong culture of networking, relationship building, and in uniting the simulation community. It is a hybrid of an academic conference, peer and expert networking event, and industry exhibition.

Year after year, participants comment on the atmosphere of collegiality and collaboration. The annual conference allows participants to connect directly with peers, experts and future collaborators in healthcare simulation.

SIM Expo continues to be the largest interprofessional and multidisciplinary simulation conference in Canada and we are excited to bring it to Montréal for 2019!


Reflecting the cultural diversity of Montréal, this year’s theme is: Interculturalism: Identity and Safety in Simulation.

We will explore issues related to intercultural interactions and cultural safety within simulations and using simulation as a means to pursue these important goals. This also ties into concepts of professional identity formation and psychological safety in simulation.

 What can you expect?

Expo participants tell us that what they appreciate most are the opportunities to learn and to connect with others – so we planned the program to include as much learning and networking as possible! You can expect:
