In light of the current and evolving COVID-19 situation, the CAP-ACP has put the launching of registration for the upcoming conference to be held in Halifax on hold for the short term.

We ask that attendees hold off on booking travel until we are able to confirm whether the meeting will proceed. We are monitoring the situation and will keep you updated.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee,

Catherine Ross
CAP-ACP President
