Purpose & Mission

The CANUSA Student Chapter of the Wildlife Disease Association was established to collaborate and enhance networking between university and non-university chapter-affiliated students within Canada and the United States (including U.S-owned territories, and other proximate regions by request). Its primary role is to support pre-conference student workshops planning and other student-associated events.

It plays a central part in networking between existing CANUSA region university chapters by providing a common communication point, and offers a unique opportunity for regional membership for individuals residing within the CANUSA regions who may not have access to local chapters through a university.
