Anne-Marie Canakis, MDCM, FRCPC, Pediatric Respirologist

Pediatric Respirology
Fun fact about me 

I enjoy skiing and sailing with my family and have fun racing competitively in our sailboat.  

I love working with children and their families because 
Children inspire me, and I feel great satisfaction being able to help them and their families.
