Those present were: Dr. W.G. DeHaas of Calgary, Dr. M. Emery of Edmonton, Dr. C.A. Laurin of Montreal, Dr. I. Macnab of Toronto, Dr. J. Robichon of Ottawa, Dr. E.H. Simmons of Toronto, Dr. W.J. Thompson of Vancouver, Dr. A. Trias of Halifax and Dr. H. Uhthoff of Montreal. Dr. Ian Macnab was elected as the founding President at the first CORS meeting held in 1967.

The purpose of the proposed society was to further the advancement of orthopaedic surgery in Canada by stimulation of orthopaedic research. To realize this, the new society aimed to become fully aware of all the types of orthopaedic research in progress in Canada. Their aims included the correlation and support of inter-related projects, the exchange of ideas and methods, the exchange of theoretical and technical ideas in special areas such as biomechanics and histology etc. The purpose also included the recognition by the formation of a society with an annual forum at which papers, reports of work in progress and research methods in related orthopaedic fields would be delivered.
