Our Mission, Vision & Values

The Canadian Critical Care Society is the National Specialty Society, representing Adult and Paediatric Critical Care Medicine physicians in Canada. The practice of Critical Care Medicine in Canada is multidisciplinary and CCCS members hold base specialty certification in anaesthesia, medicine, paediatrics, emergency medicine or surgery and some surgical subspecialties such as cardiac surgery and neurosurgery.

Our mission is to promote and enhance Critical Care Medicine in Canada. We espouse the philosophy of collaborative multidisciplinary practice to promote research, education and patient care in Critical Care Medicine. To that end, our Society is involved in Critical Care Medicine education in association with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and in CCM research with the Canadian Critical Care Trials Group.

Our annual meeting occurs in conjunction with the Canadian Critical Care Forum the CCCS welcomes new members and participation in our societies’ activities.
