An updated Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (U.S.A.) Infection Prevention and Control Guideline for people with CF, their families and health care professionals was published in the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America’s Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology journal in July 2014. The updated guidelines have been endorsed by the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) and Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s Healthcare Advisory Council.
In response to these guidelines, Cystic Fibrosis Canada has developed an infection control policy for Cystic Fibrosis Canada hosted/sponsored meetings. Please note that this policy applies to all individuals with CF, including those who have undergone lung or liver transplant. Read more about the policy here.

This year we’re looking forward to hosting you in the historic Great Hall in Fort Gibralter! This elegant venue, founded in 1809, boasts a central St. Boniface location and free parking for our guests. If you haven’t attended an event at Fort Gibralter this is the evening to experience its charm.
We’re bringing back some of the region’s best breweries, and in keeping with the heritage spirit of the venue, we'll showcase Canadian wines, and our delicious bites will be locally-sourced. We are also refreshing our music and new activities keep evening lively - a bonfire and smores cap off the evening!
