COVID-19 and CANECT 2020 Update

August 10, 2020

In light of the continuing COVID-19 situation, we have decided to postpone the in-person CANECT Environmental Compliance and Due Diligence Event until November 2021.

This was a difficult decision to make, but the health and safety of our delegates, exhibitors and speakers is paramount, as is our responsibility to protect public health. Also, from a legal standpoint, even as Ontario enters Phase 3 of the government’s re-opening plan, indoor events larger than 50 people are not permitted.

We have begun exploring with session chairs how we could summarize key issues from this year’s CANECT workshops with online training webinars, targeting delivery in November or possibly December 2020.

We’ll provide more information on these workshops with detailed titles and descriptions as these become available. You can also visit our website on a regular basis as we update the details.

These online sessions will be free to current CANECT registrants who do not cancel their registration.

The next CANECT has been scheduled for November 2021 at the Venetian Banquet and Hospitality Centre in Vaughan.

The cancellation deadline has been extended to October 1, 2021 to allow ample time to determine if you are able to attend CANECT 2021, or transfer your registration to a colleague.

As a thank you to current registrants transferring to CANECT 2021, we can offer a 50% discount on any additional registrations or additional courses.

The CANECT team truly appreciates your understanding and ongoing support during this difficult situation.

For any questions, please contact Denise Simpson at or 905-727-4666 ext. 21.
