Professional Community

This year we are building our professional community through symposium days and social events. See below for more information on what we've got planned for 2020!

pop-Up learning

We’ve started an online pop-up webinar event series to keep us connected through the pandemic. Pop-Ups may occur sporadically through the year, but they usually happen on a monthly basis.


Speakers have ranged from Pediatric Phlebotomy to COVID-19. A half-hour presentation is followed by a Q+A with members. Participants receive a CE Certificate to include in their professional portfolio.


Pop-Up learning is 100% free for MLPAO Members!

MLPAO Connect Day

MLPAO Connect Days bring together lab professionals to learn about relevant topics to the profession through incredible speakers, engage with industry vendors, and connect with other practitioners for a day of continuing education. We will be gathering online October 17, 2020!

Connect Days are an opportunity to build relationships and networks with other Medical Laboratory Professionals in your area around issues you’re facing on the ground.

Explore 2021

The MLPAO Explore 2020 Conference and Leadership Summit has been postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Join us in Ottawa June 2021 for two packed days of education, leadership training, networking, and fun.


Friday Night Lytes is our brand-new evening event series for learning, sharing, and connecting.


We were in Windsor February 7, 2020 for an Advocacy Masterclass!


Stay tuned for more events when it's safe to meet in person again.
