CICan’s Duty of Care

We are very excited to begin holding again events in person, but we recognize that COVID-19 remains a concern and will be taking extra steps to protect everyone attending our annual conference in person.

The wellbeing of our attendees is of the utmost importance, and we are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our Conference. That is why we have adopted preventative measures to reduce as much as possible the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus. We also encourage all attendees to follow recommendations provided by the Nova Scotia Ministry of Health.

Current public health recommendations:


To protect yourself and others, Nova Scotia Public Health recommends that you should wear a mask in indoor public places, public transportation and crowded outdoor spaces. 

NOTA: All CICan staff will be required to wear a mask during the conference.

Hand Sanitizer

  • Hand sanitizer stations will be positioned at registration and throughout meeting space throughout the Convention Center. 

Social distancing guidelines 

To protect yourself and others, Nova Scotia Public Health recommends that you should: 

  • stay 2 metres (6 feet) away from other people as much as possible, unless you’re with your household members (the people you live with) or your close social contacts
  • keep your close social contacts to a small consistent group, as much as possible
  • make informed choices about who and how to interact with each other (consider age, occupation and health conditions)

Personal Accountability Commitment

CICan Conference attendees, event organizers and partners agree to respect the health and safety protocols in place. This includes, but is not limited to: showing proof of vaccination upon arrival, answering a COVID screening questionnaire, wearing a mask at all times when not actively eating or drinking, respecting appropriate physical distancing, and not attending the event if you are experiencing symptoms or have been recently exposed to or diagnosed with COVID-19 (and have not yet been cleared by provincial health authorities as non-contagious, in accordance to the appropriate guidelines).

If you have any questions on the event please reach out to the CICan Events Team
