Welcome to Canadian Burn Survivors Community


In memory of Martiens Vandeberg and Trudy Vanbuskirk.

Canadian Burn Survivors Community

The Canadian Burn Survivors Community (CBSC) is a community comprised of burn survivors, fire-fighters, burn unit staff, and advisors who have come together to offer support and education to any person or people that have been affected by burns. 

Our main objectives is to help support the development of the psychological well being of burn survivors in Canada, support the sharing of materials and programs to educate our citizens in the prevention of burns in Canada, and encourage professional development of firefighters, health care providers and anyone affected by the trauma of burns in Canada.



2020 Conference

The BC Professional Fire Fighters' Burn Fund is proud to host and welcome you to Vancouver, BC for the 9th bi-annual Canadian Burn Survivors Conference. 

Our goal is to see you benefit from the content offered in the conference program and, while you are here, take in the sights and sounds that Vancouver has to offer during your stay with us.

We will be providing information on speakers, registration, sponsors, faqs, accommodations soon!

During this time of uncertainty, the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund and the Canadian Burn Survivors Community have made the decision to postpone the Blue Skies Conference that was to be held at the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront in Vancouver from May 20 - 23, 2020. 

We are actively monitoring updates regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and are following the guidance and recommendations from the Ministry of Health and the Office of the Provincial Health Officer. This includes the cancellation of events larger than 50 people. We respect that this is a difficult time for many, and while we hope to reschedule this conference within one year, we will not be setting a new date at this time.
