  • Special segments covering:
    • the latest information on HAE with Normal C1 Inhibtor,
    • HAE in women, and
    • Children with HAE.
  • An overview of the latest patient-driven research initiatives,
  • Sessions targeted especially for the youngest members of the HAE community, and

HAE Canada Patient Information Update

A year ago we planned to have an in-person Patient Information Update in Manitoba, but unfortunately that event was cancelled due to COVID-19. Since we are still unable to have in-person meetings, we have decided to pivot and hold a virtual Patient Information Update. Fortunately, this allows us to open up registration to the entire membership.

Please join us for a live, on-line Zoom meeting with presentations. The focus will be on access to current and upcoming HAE treatments, with time for speakers to answer pre-submitted questions after their presentation. Attendees will also have the opportunity to listen to a fellow patient’s perspective on living with HAE.


The Information Update is only open to members of HAE Canada. An invitation with the link to register for the event has been emailed to our membership; however, if you are a member and did not receive your invitation, please email Daphne at office@haecanada.org and one will be sent to you. If you are an HAE patient or caregiver in Canada but not a member and you’d like to attend, please CLICK HERE to submit your application for membership. Once you become a member we will send you the link to register.
