Practitioners and top experts gathered in Toronto and Calgary to discuss the biggest their biggest issues, share case studies, and hear the latest original Conference Board research.

Post-Conference Webinar

Attendees at these conferences were also able to view our post-conference webinar sponsored by Merck Canada. The session was titled Linking Health and Productivity, hosted by Dr. Thomas Parry, Chief Executive Officer of the Integrated Benefits Institute in San Francisco.
