The AMMI Canada – CACMID Annual Conference 2020, scheduled to take place in Vancouver, BC April 29 to May 2 has been cancelled.

The decision to cancel this conference was difficult but was made after careful deliberation and consideration. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the province of British Columbia recommending cancellation of all mass gatherings of over 250 people, travel restrictions for health care professionals to remain available at their workplace, and of course,  the health and safety of our members and delegates, the Central Planning Committee has determined that cancelling the conference is the prudent thing to do.

  • All delegate registration fees will be fully refunded, starting Wednesday March 18, 2020.
    • Should you wish to defer your registration fee to the 2021 conference, please email meetings@ammi.ca to let us know no later than 9:00 am eastern March 18, 2020.
  • All exhibit booth registration fees will be fully refunded, starting Wednesday March 18, 2020.
    • Should you wish to defer your exhibit booth registration fees to the 2021 conference, please email meetings@ammi.ca to let us know no later than 9:00 am eastern March 18, 2020.
  • All hotel reservations made in the AMMI Canada – CACMID Annual Conference 2020 room block at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre will be cancelled by the hotel and any deposits provided will be refunded by the hotel directly to the registrants.  Please DO NOT contact the hotel to cancel your booking if you made your booking via the conference website, it will automatically be done for you. 

For delegates with accepted abstracts, we are exploring options for you to share your research with your peers. We thank you for your patience and further information will be coming over the next few weeks.
