Canadian Pediatric Endocrine Group

Our Mission

The Canadian Pediatric Endocrine Group is dedicated to excellence in the care of infants, children and adolescents with diabetes and other endocrine disorders.


Our activities include a yearly high level scientific and educational meeting, which is hosted on a rotating basis by pediatric endocrinology centres from across Canada.


CPEG works to represent Canadian pediatric endocrinologists and our patients on standing committees within the Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism (CSEM) and the Pediatric Endocrine Society (PES).


CPEG offers clinical and research fellowships for Canadian trainees. To date, over 35 pediatric endocrinology fellows have received support through the CPEG fellowship program.

President's Message

Our organization, although small in size, has been extremely productive over the last 20 years and it is my hope to continue this track record of productiveness through collaborative research, advocacy, knowledge translation, and support of our next generation of pediatric endocrinologists via CPEG fellowships. The Annual CPEG Scientific Meeting is always a highlight where our dynamic membership can come together to advance our knowledge in pediatric endocrinology while also enjoying opportunities to network, share meals, and laugh (often hysterically) together. I look forward to seeing all of you in Winnipeg in 2020!

Dr. Shazhan Amed, President, Canadian Pediatric Endocrine Group

Our History

The Canadian Pediatric Endocrine Group / Groupe Canadien d’Endocrinologie Pédiatrique (CPEG / GCEP) held its first independent meeting in London, Ontario, in 2007. Canadian pediatric endocrinologists had met regularly before, but within the framework of larger groups, such as the joint meetings of the Canadian Diabetes Association and of the Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism (CDA/CSEM) or of groups with a narrower mandate, such as the Canadian Growth Hormone Advisory Committee. However, there had been a longstanding desire of pediatric endocrinologists to form an independent group. CPEG therefore became a self-standing association in 2006 and started organizing its own annual meetings.

Our Members

The Canadian Pediatric Endocrine Group (CPEG) is the official Canadian association for pediatric endocrinology. Our membership is comprised mostly of pediatric endocrinologists, pediatric endocrine nurses, and pediatric subspecialty residents (fellows) who are training to become endocrinologists. We are a highly collaborative and collegial group dedicated to caring for children and adolescents with endocrine disorders.
