Public Health 2020 to be rescheduled

We recognize that our community is actively leading the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and that these activities must take priority. We thank you for your tireless efforts. We have also been advised to exercise an abundance of caution when it comes to holding a mass gathering, such as our conference.

As a result, we plan to reschedule Public Health 2020 to Autumn 2020.

We are working with the RBC Convention Centre and Delta Hotels by Marriott Winnipeg to identify appropriate dates for a rescheduled event and we will notify you as soon as those dates have been set.


You will be given the opportunity to request a refund or maintain your registration for the new dates. An update on this process will be available as soon as the new dates are confirmed.


The Delta Hotels by Marriott Winnipeg will accept cancellations up to 72 hours before your original arrival date. If you made accommodation arrangements at another property, you should contact them immediately.

Many airlines have revised their cancellation and change policies. Please work directly with your travel agent or airline. CPHA is unable to provide refunds for travel expenses.


Once new dates for the conference have been established, CPHA’s Conference Department will contact all presenters to confirm your participation and the time and date of your presentation.


Information regarding a rescheduled Annual General Meeting will be provided to members separately.


All pre-conference sessions will be cancelled or rescheduled. Registered delegates for the following events will be notified separately:

  • Canadian Alliance for Regional Risk Factor Surveillance: The art and science of data linkage
  • Trauma-informed & culturally safe approaches to health promotion
  • Public Health Physicians of Canada Continuing Professional Development Event
  • National Collaborating Centres for Infectious Diseases and Determinants of Health – IDeas at Dawn

This was not an easy decision and we thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please contact us by email.
