The impact of the COVID-19 is being felt across our industry. Many of our member firms are facing challenging times as they navigate the uncertainty of crisis. For this reason, ACEC-Canada made the decision to cancel the 2020 national leadership conference. Instead, we will focus our efforts on delivering relevant business information and tools in the coming months to support our member firms through the crisis and the recovery.
While health authorities anticipate the crisis to have subsided, and for physical distancing and self-isolation requirements to be lifted by the summer, the consulting engineering industry will continue to experience the impact of the crisis well into 2021. During this time, we anticipate that the focus of our members will be on their firms, their employees and their clients.
Although the national leadership conference has been cancelled, the 2020 Canadian Consulting Engineering Awards gala – which was scheduled to take place October 27th as the closing event of the conference – will be postponed to sometime in early 2021 as a standalone event and celebration of our industry.
