The Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses is an organization formed by practicing Foot Care Nurses from across Canada.


As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, CAFCN encourages all foot care nurses to reach out to their regulatory college, professional associations, and local health authorities when making decisions regarding their own individual nursing foot care practice. 

CAFCN thanks all front-line workers for their dedication during this time, and wishes safety and health for all.

Nursing foot care is a practice that always considers our patients and clients holistic’s needs. We realize that we must practice as part of the greater health care team. Our care often intersects and overlaps the care given by other health professionals. To help us do this we draw on resources from a wide variety of other sources as well as our own to help us be valuable team members.

Our 2022 Conference is May 27 – 28, with the AGM happening on Friday, May 27. As always, we look forward to an interesting line-up of speakers and workshops, all designed to help you learn and improve as a foot care nurse! Registration will open in March.

Call for Speakers

The Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses Conference Planning Committee is inviting Canadian and International health professionals to submit an abstract for the 2022 virtual conference. Topic suggestions include a wide range of ideas such as research, education, health policy and clinical practice. If you have a voice and perspective to share, CAFCN attendees would love to learn from you. Over our years, we have found that the best educational experiences come from a robust sharing of experiences, debating ideas, and sharing solutions.
