Canadian European Trade Assembly (CETA) for Digital Health Ottawa, June 4-5, 2018

Join us in Ottawa, Canada on June 4-5 2018 for the Canadian European Trade Assembly for Digital Health. This international conference is hosted by the Canadian Integrated Health Alliance (; in partnership with the European Connected Health Alliance (, and is designed to connect Canadian, American and European stakeholders in the rapidly emerging fields of digital health and social care.

Impetus for the meeting is the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement – the recently ratified free-trade agreement between Canada, the European Union and its member states. As it goes into force this year, CETA will eliminate 98% of the tariffs between Canada and the EU.

The Ottawa conference will explore how free trade can accelerate the transnational exchange of information, products and services between European and Canadian digital healthcare organizations. 

Our goal is to provide a neutral platform to encourage collaboration between government, academic medicine and industry to find solutions to complex issues around digital interoperability standards, data governance, 2nd use of health-data and digital transformation & change management.

A wide spectrum of health and social care stakeholders will attend. Several trade delegations from Europe and American wish to connect with Canadian Life Science technology firms to expand their markets. In addition to one-on-one ‘Match-Maker’ sessions, the Ottawa accelerator community will be present to help start-ups connect with funding, resources and market access.


Proposed agenda

Why Attend/Sponsor?

Network: Meet new contacts and explore international market opportunities. Be part of a global conversation on improving digital health and social care. 

Learn: Discover how countries on both sides of the Atlantic are advancing digital healthcare. Compare and contrast the outcomes of European Digital Health Society and Canada Health Infoway - what’s working or not and why.  

Grow: Eliminate geo-political and regulatory barriers to access new transnational markets, products and services.  Collaborate on new product acquisition or partnership strategies with innovative digital health organizations.

Come to Ottawa this June and see how your organization will benefit from CETA and transnational free trade.
