The Capacity Building Committee and Communications and Engagement Committee are looking for additional members. These committees meet monthly for 1 hour to discuss ideas and move forward initiatives.


The Capacity Building Committee is focused on training and development of CNTN membership and the mentorship of new investigators and patient partners. Their mandate is to increase the number of people and resources available to conduct clinical trials in Canada and to increase the number of research ideas or questions developed by both patients and physicians.



The Communications and Engagement Committee’s mission is to increase the exposure of CNTN to the nephrology community across Canada thereby increasing membership to facilitate more collaboration with academic and non-academic sites across Canada and keeping that community informed about what is happening in the research community.


Email the CNTN project manager, Alicia at, if you have questions or would like to join the committee.
