CAG Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

CAG Special Interest Groups (SIGs) exist to support professional development and deepening of networks in focused areas of gastroenterology practice and research. A SIG’s primary purpose is to act in the best interests of the Association, including being integral to the pursuit of the Association’s mission and objectives.

The role of a SIG is for the promotion and encouragement of the study, research and advancement of the science and practice of gastroenterology in Canada and fostering discussion, cooperation and debate among members of the Association.

SIGs are to support members in pursuit of special interests within the Association, to aid in forming and maintaining liaison among those with special interest, and to provide advice to the Association, as needed, on issues related to the SIG’s area of interest. A SIG will have no formal reporting structure to the CAG.

Please review the SIG Terms of Reference before you submit an application.
