National Apprenticeship Conference
The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF-FCA), having carefully assessed the associated risks of the COVID-19 outbreak and recommendations by Canada Public Health, has officially decided to postpone the 2020 National Apprenticeship Conference scheduled to take place May 24-26 in Calgary, AB. We would like to thank the more than 300 delegates who registered to date as well as our conference partners, exhibitors, speakers and vendors for their understanding and patience during these uncertain times. We ask that you bear with us over the coming weeks as we navigate the administration of the decision.
We are currently exploring a future date for the event and will keep you updated through both direct and other CAF-FCA communication channels. We look forward to bringing the Canadian apprenticeship community together at a future date when the health and safety of our participants, partners, colleagues and staff can be assured.
As we work out details of the administration brought on by this decision, we ask you to consider deferring your current registration to the future date. Should this not be possible, provisions will be made to process your refund. Due to the volume of activity currently taking place at CAF-FCA, our event management company, venue and hotel partners, we ask for your patience as we establish a process for managing this. We will be in touch again in the coming days to provide an update and present the options going forward.
Please ensure that you cancel any hotel and travel arrangements related to the conference. Delegates should take advantage of allowances made by airlines to cancel booked flights.
If you booked accommodation at the Calgary Hyatt Regency within the CAF-FCA block, your reservation will be cancelled automatically and will receive confirmation. If you did not book through the group (including shoulder dates), you will need to reach out directly as the hotel will not connect you to the 2020 National Apprenticeship Conference.
For reservations at the Calgary Marriott Downtown you need to cancel directly with the property.
We will be in touch again in the coming days with registered delegates to provide an update and present the options going forward.
