Canadian Thoracic Society

The Canadian Thoracic Society (CTS) is Canada’s national inter-professional specialty society for respirology bringing together over 1,000 members representing specialists, physicians, researchers and healthcare professionals from a variety of disciplines working in respiratory health.

The Canadian Thoracic Society was first formed in 1958 when the Canadian Tuberculosis Association, now The Lung Association, recognized the need to establish a medical association to address the problems of medical education and research in the field of tuberculosis and other respiratory diseases.  Up until its incorporation as a distinct legal entity in 2015, the CTS served as the medical section of The Lung Association and remains a strong collaborating partner today.
