Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and CaGBC events

The CaGBC is committed to providing a safe and healthy space for all participants, speakers, attendees, exhibitors and partners at any of our events. The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation globally, and at present time, many Canadian jurisdictions have declared a state of emergency. Based on guidance from PHAC and other public health agencies, CaGBC is postponing Building Lasting Change until later this year and transitioning events to video conferencing and online offerings where possible.
