MARCH 13, 2020 – The Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) has cancelled their upcoming international Annual Conference 2020 that was to take place in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan from May 27-31, 2020.
In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, CSCE has been closely following all updates from the World Health Organization, the Public Health Agency of Canada, as well as provincial and federal governments. With the latest recommendations and a deep appreciation for our civil responsibility to participate in all necessary measures to reduce the impact of this outbreak, there was no question that cancelling this conference was the appropriate action to take.
CSCE fully appreciates the efforts, resources and commitments that have gone into the planning of this conference and will take immediate action to put together next steps and will provide further communications imminently to all those involved. Any paid CSCE Conference registrations will be refunded.
As a global organization, we fully appreciate our role under these circumstances and trust that our colleagues and neighbors will follow suit so we may all get through this situation as quickly as possible.
Over the coming weeks, we are committed to setting the example of remaining calm, compassionate and considerate of others.
