Sponsorship Opportunities

Partnering with CHS

Membership dues do not support the full cost of running the society and fulfilling our education and research mission. It is through industry sponsorship that we are able to continue our important professional activities. We rely on the generous sponsorship from our industry partners.

As one of the world’s leading professional medical societies concerned with the causes and treatments of blood disorders, the CHS offers a variety of opportunities for industry to support our educational programs.  Contact [email protected] to receive a prospectus.

Executive Committee

The CHS today

The organization continues to grow and keep pace with innovations and best practices. Today our membership includes hematologists, hematopathologists, hematology trainees and hematology research scientists from across Canada.


On January 20, 1971, the 56 attendees at the Canadian Hematology Society’s inaugural General Meeting approved the Society’s first draft bylaws. The meeting, chaired by founding President, R Kennedy Smiley was held at Ottawa’s Chateau Laurier.


Our CHS mission is to lead and influence the practice of hematology in Canada as the recognized voice of the Canadian hematology community.

In part, our mission is achieved by promoting lifelong learning through continuing medical education, continuing health education and education at the annual meeting as well as fulfilling some of the maintenance of certification requirements. Our mission is further achieved by the advancement of young scientists, clinicians and investigators through fostering of innovative and ultimately practice-changing hematology research.

Our Goals

Our main goals are to maintain the integrity and vitality of the specialty of hematology, by participating with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in designing training programs for our successors, encouraging and rewarding scholarly research, and providing a forum for communication and mutual support for all of our colleagues in community and academic settings.

Educational Partnership Opportunities

Continuing Medical Education

The CHS hosts industry-sponsored educational information in the form of webinars, videos and articles that can be posted, viewed, archived and revisited.

These items are available for sponsorship.

Academic hematology cases

Case studies related to malignant or benign hematology are posted along with a multiple choice quiz. Subsequently, answers to the quiz are provided and a summary article is posted highlighting knowledge gaps that become evident from the answers. The cases also include a discussion forum, cover the spectrum of hematology and provide up-to-date information on new developments in the field.

These cases are available for sponsorship.

Image challenge

We also have an image challenge; blood or bone marrow film. This challenge is a great way to keep one’s hematopathology skills sharp.

``Message Me``

Through our website, members can directly email a fellow CHS member. This feature facilitates networking and meet-ups with colleagues at meetings such as ASH.
