Virtual BRA Day is back! On Wednesday, October 19, 2022, The Peter Gilgan Centre for Women’s Cancers at Women’s College Hospital (WCH) in partnership with The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) and with generous support from The Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons, Allergan Aesthetics and Mentor are delivering this free, three-hour virtual event for those considering breast reconstruction.
BRA Day is intended to EDUCATE women on their breast reconstruction options, EMPOWER women to make the choice that’s right for them and CONNECT women with others who have been through it.
The virtual event will include presentations from leading Canadian breast reconstruction experts, patient stories, resource rooms and a virtual Show and Tell Lounge, offering a unique opportunity to see real results of breast reconstruction.
We’re excited to once again host this year’s virtual BRA Day and continue the movement’s mission to close the loop on breast cancer.

“I love the concept of this event and think it is extremely important for patients to have this venue. I am in health care and therefore may not have learned as much as those without that surgical background but think it is so important for all, including me. It builds a sense of belonging. I am very thankful for having had the opportunity and for everyone’s time and consideration in putting this together in these very strange times of COVID-19! Thank you to all!!!”
“This event is amazing. BRA Day shares information I can’t find anywhere else and does so in an extremely supportive, open and unbiased way. I truly cannot say enough about this event and tell everyone I know about it. Thank you for your dedication.”
“The virtual format was so convenient! It was great to be comfortable at home and navigate smoothly between sessions. I really liked the Show and Tell Lounge. Great people and nicely moderated.”
