CKCA's National Forum moved to September

Share this story

The CKCA Board of Directors has made the decision to move the National Forum, originally scheduled for June 16-18, in Charlottetown, P.E.I., to Waterloo, Ont, Sept. 29 to Oct. 1.
The decision was made after consideration of the pace at which Canada is easing COVID-19 restrictions.
Planning for events and contracting with providers takes months and given current circumstances, the CKCA board has decided to push back the dates.
“P.E.I. is an excellent location and we look forward to visiting there in the future. Moving the event to the fall and leveraging a pre-existing event poses less risk at this time and we hope COVID-19 will be further behind. CKCA’s Fall Regional Event was already on the books with the Ontario location previously chosen.”
In addition, CKCA plans to return to the West in early 2023 with a Spring Regional Event. More updates will be provided as they become available.
CKCA will still be hosting its Annual General Meeting virtually on May 25. All CKCA members will be invited to attend.
“CKCA is anxious to get back to hosting face-to-face events,” says CKCA President Heidi Boudreault.
“We know the huge value the plant tours and networking provides for our members and we’ve really missed that kind of interaction. Now, more than ever, we want to talk to each other because the past two years have been tough for us all. While there are still many uncertainties due to the Omicron variant, the board agreed that transitioning the previously scheduled Fall Regional Event into the National Forum makes sense. It gives us more time to organize providers and it is our sincere hope that we will be well on our way to recovering from COVID-19.”
