Letter from the CPAS President - Dr Simon Whyte

November 9th, 2015

Dear Colleagues

It is a year since I became President of the Canadian Pediatric Anesthesia Society &, with a year of my term to run, I feel I am nowhere near halfway through my to-do list!

Two major structural changes have occupied a large amount of my time so far, both very much ‘behind-the-scenes’ issues & neither seemingly very exciting at first blush, but both have far-reaching implications and present important opportunities for the evolution of CPAS.

Re:Draft By-Laws for your review
Dear CPAS Members 


As you may be aware we have to change our existing Bylaws  in order to be in conformation with the new Canada Not-for- Profit Corporations Act. This process has been undertaken by your Executive Committee with Dentons Canada, Lawyers for CAS. We now have an acceptable draft for discussion at the AGM on Sunday September 28th and are providing a copy for you to examine prior to that meeting.

CARF Partners with Smart Tots for Pediatric Anesthesia Research

Published December 11th, 2013

Earlier this year, CARF entered into a 2-year agreement with the IARS to fundraise under the Smart Tots banner to raise money for pediatric anesthesia research, specifically, anesthetic effects on pediatric neurological development.   Some may recall that Smart Tots was created through a public-private partnership between the IARS and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the spring of 2011.  Since that time, they have engaged multiple stakeholders in both public and private sectors in their fund-raising endeavors.
