About CSP


The Canadian Society of Phlebology is a non-profit organization, established in 1973. Its forefathers were a handful of physicians from Quebec, with a keen interest in the treatment of varicose veins. They gathered to learn, share and grow.

Today, its membership in the hundreds, the Society has grown to encompass not only practitioners from Canada but physicians from all over the world. Its doors are also open to other allied health professionals who have an interest in Phlebology – the study of veins and their diseases.

The Society is also committed to teaching – providing excellent academic programs, striving to maintain the high standards of quality content intended for the educational experiences of its members.
