I'm currently looking for sim work in Canada, so if you have any leads please let me know!

Smooth-On is having a workshop in Toronto on December 3rd:

Medical Simulation Training with Silicone Hands-On Workshop -
A full-day hands-on workshop which will focus on material knowledge and medical simulation training using Smooth-On silicones. These materials allow you to make your own hyper realistic suture pads, injection pads, wound effects and more. Course instruction will be provided by a Smooth-On medical simulation specialist. Smooth-On has supplied material knowledge and training to centers such as UCLA, Drexel University, Boston Children's Hospital, Mayo Clinic, Shands Hospital amongst others across the USA. This course will reveal the significant savings that can be realized by making your own low-cost, long-lasting reusable simulation devices vs. buying commercially available products.

You can find out more / register for the workshop here.
