After careful consideration, we have decided to remove from the calendar CI’s Eastern Indigenous Consultation & Engagement originally scheduled for May 13–14, 2020 this year.

We have made this decision out of an abundance of caution given COVID-19 concerns. The safety and security of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff, remain CI’s top priority.

We apologize for the inconvenience but know that this will give us the time we need to make a fantastic event in 2021.
