This message is to update you regarding the CAPSLE annual conference and AGM which are scheduled to begin on April 26, 2020.  On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Conference Organizing Committee, I want to assure you that the health and safety of our attendees, speakers, staff, and community in general is our top priority.  We are closely monitoring all Public Health and government directions and advice as the COVID-19 situation quickly unfolds. We continue to work with the conference venue to ensure an outcome that meets public safety requirements and our duty to the stability and financial well being of CAPSLE.

As the Province of Ontario recently declared a state of emergency, public gatherings of more than 50 people have been banned until the end of March 2020. At this stage, we do not yet know whether this restriction will be extended beyond that point.

Regardless, we want to assure you that CAPSLE will abide by all Public Health and governmental orders and directions, and we will be guided at all times by your best interests.  To that end, CAPSLE is extending the deadline for cancelling conference registrations without penalty to April 3, 2020.

I thank you for your patience and for your support.


Judy Begley

CAPSLE President
