RAIC 2020 Conference on Architecture Cancelled

The RAIC has announced the cancellation of the 2020 Annual Conference on Architecture and all pre-Conference events, scheduled for June 2-7, 2020 in Edmonton, Alberta. This decision is due to the continued rapid spread of the COVID-19 public health emergency.

In recent days, a number of federal, provincial, and municipal government policy decisions have made the cancellation of the Conference unavoidable.

The RAIC is exploring alternate virtual continuing education programs with Conference presenters and volunteer leadership, as part of their ongoing commitment to enabling meaningful continuing education to support best practices in the profession.

The RAIC will refund all registration, sponsorship and tradeshow fees. In addition, the RAIC will facilitate any hotel cancellations that were made in any of the three room blocks using the code they provided.

“We will share additional information about our plans through the RAIC bulletin, e-notices and on our COVID-19: Updates and Information page as we continue to explore the details. Although this is an extraordinary situation, we are committed to keeping the spirit of Conference going, and we thank you for your patience as we move forward with the next steps,” said the RAIC.
