As you may know, on March 16, 2020 the BC Provincial Health Officer issued an order which states that operators are prohibited from permitting the gathering of more than 50 people. Currently, this order expires on May 31, 2020 – subject to revision, cancellation or extension by the Provincial Health Officer.
As a result, we unfortunately have no choice but to cancel our annual HR Conference & Expo scheduled for April 28 & 29. We are aware that many of you were looking forward to Conference and want you to know that we are putting together some exciting and informative virtual learning opportunities for the weeks and months ahead. We hope you will take advantage of these online learning events to gather your CPD hours, gain insight from the experts and connect with the HR community.
For those who have registered for conference we are going to cancel your registration and credit your CPHR BC & Yukon account for the amount you paid. That credit can be used to secure a registration for next year’s conference May 11 & 12, 2021 at no additional costs. The credit can also be used towards any of our other services i.e. membership, events and PD, online and in-person. You are also entitled to a full refund. If you choose the refund option, please let us know in writing, or EMAIL of this choice, so we have a permanent record. It may take us a few business days to process your request. We appreciate your patience.

CPHR BC & Yukon is aware of the latest BC Government advisory regarding large gatherings, and is considering what it means for the upcoming HR Conference & Expo. As we are close to six weeks out from conference, we are continuing to monitor developments and investigate appropriate next steps. We will be in contact with all registered delegates, sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, and other stakeholders once we have more news to share.
We appreciate your understanding.
