CICan 2020 Conference


May 3 - 5, 2020 | Montreal, Quebec

Palais des Congrès de Montréal

Cancellation of 2020 CICan Conference

Given the continuing concerns over COVID-19 and in keeping with the recommendations of public health officials and provincial Ministers to avoid large gatherings and limit non-essential travel, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 CICan Connection Conference and related pre-conference activities that were scheduled to take place in Montreal, May 1st-5th.

Our primary concern has been, and will always remain, the health and well-being of our community – CICan members, sponsors, exhibitors and other stakeholders and partners. All registrants will be contacted shortly and will be eligible for a full reimbursement.

Thank you and we hope to see you at our 2021 CICan Connection Conference in Calgary!
