Welcome from the Canadian Lymphedema Framework

We invite you to join us in Toronto on November 3-4 for the 2023 National Lymphedema Conference at the Toronto Airport Marriott Hotel. Attend the conference and stay a few extra days to enjoy time in Canada’s largest city on the shore of beautiful Lake Ontario. Toronto is a vibrant, multicultural city with top attractions, superb shopping, and diverse cultural, culinary, and entertainment experiences.

We look forward to seeing you in Toronto in November.
