Like many organizations that hold public events, Pride at Work Canada has been closely monitoring the rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19, particularly in our home city of Toronto which is also the location of our upcoming conference originally scheduled for April 30 and May 1, 2020. We have been saddened by the impact this global health issue has had on communities in Canada and around the world, especially in cases where lives have been lost.
Presently, Public Health Ontario maintains that the risk this situation poses to people in Ontario is low. However, as a national organization that engages employers across Canada we are aware that some organizations have placed precautionary restrictions on travel for their employees. With this consideration, and to ensure access to our annual conference to attendees outside of the Greater Toronto Area, we have made the decision to reschedule THRIVE 2020 for November 26 & 27. We understand that not all current ticket holders may be able to accommodate this change, in which case we will reimburse the full ticket price and all associated fees. Pride at Work Canada would like to thank THRIVE 2020’s lead sponsor and host Scotiabank for their continued support and agility in helping to locate a new date for this exciting event.
Pride at Work Canada has several upcoming events in Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver and Victoria. At present, we plan to move forward with these events. Unlike THRIVE 2020, the anticipated audiences are local. Please refer to individual event pages on our website for details on measures we are taking to ensure the safety of our guests at each event as well as precautions attendees can take should they choose to join us.
Questions about THRIVE 2020 or any of our upcoming events can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
