The Bone & Joint Institute at Western University, in partnership with the Canadian Network for Mobility Research (CaNMoR) and the Canadian MSK Rehab Research Network, welcomes researchers and knowledge users from across the country and beyond to the 4th Biennial Canadian Bone and Joint Conference (CBJC) June 12th & 13th 2020.

The conference will be preceded on June 11th by the Canadian Bone and Joint Young Investigator’s Forum (CBJY) which includes trainee focused workshops organized by trainees for trainees

Given the current health concerns we are facing, the 2020 CBJC will be hosted virtually on the Zoom video conferencing platform.

This exciting event will bring together experts spanning multi-disciplinary areas in musculoskeletal (MSK) research in a unique interactive online format to keep our MSK research spirit alive and our community interacting.

Researchers will present new knowledge and brainstorm about future collaborative research to fulfill a vision of Lifelong Mobility for All.


With so many conference cancellations, we want to provide an opportunity to everyone, and most importantly, our early career researchers and trainees to share their work. Our exciting program, delivered over 2 afternoons to accommodate time zones includes live streamed Oral Presentations, Pre-recorded Video Open Poster Sessions in both English and French, and Invited Guest Speakers focused on several topic areas including (but not limited to):

  • Social Inequities in Care Delivery, Therapies & Research
  • Phenotyping & Data Registries
  • Infection & Inflammation
  • MSK Rehabilitation
  • MSK Remote & Virtual Innovations
Awards will be presented (sponsorship dependent) to the top presentations and posters.
