Engineering Canada’s Oceans Future
Technical Symposium & Induction Ceremony of New Fellows
As you are aware, the Coronavirus pandemic is resulting in the cancellation of many events around the world. We have concluded that holding our Technical Symposium on the Future of Oceans Engineering in Canada and the Induction Dinner for New Fellows in Halifax on June 15 this year is not advisable under the current circumstances.
The Executive Committee have carefully considered scenarios for delaying the technical symposium and New Fellow induction dinner until later in the year; however, we have concluded that the best course of action for the Fellows, the Academy, our partners and our sponsors is to take the extraordinary step of cancelling these events for 2020 and re-focusing on June 2021.
The AGM will go ahead on June 15, 2020 as planned and required by our By-laws and the not-for-profit corporations act but as a virtual event, and further details on this will be circulated at a later date once technical questions have been resolved.
Thank you to our Sponsors!
