A message from the Committee Co-chairs

In the past year and a half, we have learned to “survive, pivot and thrive” and it is clear that through it all our industry is forever changed. On behalf of CCAE, please join us as we share our stories of success at our CCAE National Conference taking place in Niagara Falls in May 2022.

Located in a beautiful part of Canada, the Niagara region greets you with jaw dropping views of farmland, beaches and waterways, a rich Canadian history and cultural activities to explore, world class shopping and dining, and plenty of wineries and micro-breweries to keep all of us occupied.

This conference will be our first opportunity to gather in person since the pandemic began and we will be implementing COVID-19 regulations to ensure a safe and supportive conference experience that allows for ample time to network, learn, and collaborate.

The connections and idea sharing will of course be the key highlight of the National Conference, but we promise the content will be relevant and will speak to the incredible work that has occurred despite our challenging considerations. The program committee is well underway selecting from the phenomenal presentations we received this year and have already secured our first keynote speaker, the esteemed Dr. Jacqueline Ottmann, President of First Nations University of Canada.

Stay tuned for details on exciting speakers, special events, and so much more. We know this CCAE National Conference will be an event to remember.
