In 2017, the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology is celebrating it's 50th Anniversary. Throughout the year we will commemorate this historic milestone in ways that celebrate our history and future while highlight both our longstanding members and our newest members, and their contributions to the field of exercise science. We have a number of special anniversary year activities and are enhancing on-going activities to celebrate.
