The 20th Annual Canadian Society of Echocardiography Weekend will be held from 12 to 14 April, 2018 at the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel. We have developed an exciting educational program for you celebrating our 20th anniversary with a special look at Echocardiography Past, Present and Future on Thursday evening. This will be followed by two case-based packed days of learning and interaction with colleagues, friends and experts from across Canada.
The Annual Canadian Echo Weekend is designed around your needs and requests over the past nineteen meetings. We will focus on common clinical problems encountered in your practice and the important role that echocardiography plays in diagnosis and patient management. Novel and evolving technologies to enhance your diagnostic capabilities and improve patient care will be highlighted.

Dr. Trevor Robinson
Trevor was born in the small town of Kellits, Jamaica to Reginald and Louise Robinson. He earned a scholarship to the prestigious boarding school, Munro College, to which he was inducted into their Hall of Fame in 2016 for his contribution to echocardiography. While studying in Buffalo, New York, Trevor met the love of his life, Ranga, who had travelled halfway across the globe from Madras, India. In 1966, Trevor and Ranga were married and in 1973, Trevor joined the cardiology staff at St. Michael’s Hospital. In 2008, Dr. Robinson received the lifetime Achievement Award from the Canadian Society of Echocardiography. Dr. Robinson, known as ‘TR’, devoted countless hours to the treatment of his thousands of patients until his retirement in December 2015. For over 50 years, Trevor and Ranga remained inseparable. Trevor was most proud of his two children, Lisa (John Aquino) and Rohan (Sylvie) and his three grandchildren, David, Laurel and Kate. They sorely miss their Appa but know that he will always be watching over them. Trevor also leaves behind a brother, Barry, and two sisters, Hope and Joy. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to all of the staff at Toronto General Hospital for providing Trevor with such phenomenal and compassionate care to the very end.
