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. We will be highlighting 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. 

We look forward to collaborating and celebrating with you to make 2017 a year to remember! Follow along and share your stories by using #CSEPTurns50 and stay tuned as we share our history and announce more activities.
