CBIE Conference 2020
The meeting place for international education professionals from across Canada and around the world.
CBIE2020 is going virtual
Dear CBIE members, partners, friends and colleagues in international education,
We have taken the last few months to carefully consider and consult on the best path forward for the CBIE2020 conference. We have witnessed as many of our sister associations around the globe have had to make the difficult decision of canceling or postponing their annual sector gatherings.
In prioritizing the health and well-being of our conference delegates and CBIE staff, we have made the decision to host a virtual conference for CBIE2020 in place of a face to face conference this November. We feel strongly that there has never been a more important time for our sector to be connected. We remain hopeful that this fall’s conference will provide the space for leaders and practitioners across Canada and beyond to gather, to share and to learn from one another as we continue to work to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on our learners, researchers, faculty/teachers, institutions, communities, country and global community, and work together to sustainably shape the future of international education in Canada.
Our virtual program will include all the elements of the face to face conference including concurrent sessions, plenaries, a virtual exhibition, a presentation of the Excellence Awards and the Annual General Meeting of our membership.
We shall share more information about the conference program as the event takes shape over the coming months on CBIE.ca and via our communications channels.
We look forward to engaging with you at virtual CBIE2020!
