We are interested in developing the haptics community in Canada, which has a long history with excellent haptics and human-computer interaction research. The long-term goal of this initiative is to promote collaboration and support research by identifying and leveraging Canada's expertise in haptics and physical user interfaces. This fall workshop that took place on October 24, 2019 was a first brainstorming and networking activity to develop such a network and gather like-minded experts in one place. Representatives from the University of Waterloo's Centre for Bioengineering and Biotechnology, the Games Institute and the Faculty of Engineering as well as the University of British Columbia, McGill University, École de technologie supérieure, University of Manitoba and industry representative Immersion were present.
