CSN Winter 2022 Newsletter


On behalf of the CSN Board of Directors, I would like to convey our ongoing gratitude to all the members of the CSN who continue to provide leadership and commitment to our society. It has been a difficult and strange few years during this Pandemic, but as a consequence of your dedication and efforts we have continued to flourish. Thank you!

As we emerge from COVID towards more normal operations, we will be returning to our pre-COVID fee structure for 2023.

In appreciation of your efforts and dedication these past years, we will keep our regular membership dues at 2019 levels, and there will be no increase in registration fees for CSN AGM 2023.

COVID-19 Emergency Preparedness

Dialysis patients have a high COVID-19 mortality rate, but were left out of vaccine priority: View the CTV News Interviews with CSN President, Dr. Sanjay Pandeya along with CSN Members Dr. Michelle Hladunewich and Dr. François Madore, SQN President.

CSN has advocated to all Provinces and the Federal Government for the urgent prioritization of dialysis patients for COVID-19 vaccinations. La SCN a préconisé auprès de toutes les provinces et du gouvernement fédéral, la priorisation urgente de la vaccination contre la COVID-19 des patients sous dialyse.

CSNSCN COVID-19 Rapid Response Team Drafts, preprints, and published articles to be published in the Canadian Journal of Kidney Health and Disease

The CSN has reached out to many of the renal agencies to ask for copies of their contingency plans, which are posted on this page of the CSN website as a central place for all to review.
