Navigating Anew

April 25 – 27, 2022 | Halifax Convention Centre

CICan’s Annual Conference is the largest event of its kind in Canada! It fosters connections between post-secondary institutions from across the country and around the world. In 2022 these connections will focus on navigating anew in this fast forward future.

Health and safety remains our number one concern.

We are monitoring the current spread of COVID-19 and projections over the next few months. For now, the conference will go ahead as planned in hybrid format, which means we will be welcoming participants online and in person in Halifax. We look forward to seeing you in person!
