IMPORTANT NOTICE


Considering public health concerns regarding the progression of COVID-19, we have decided to postpone the 2020 CPPO Prepaid Symposium to a later date. While the Canadian situation is still considered low risk, we feel this is the best option to prioritize the safety of all our attendees and mitigate any exposure to risks. We are currently in the process of securing a new date for the Symposium, which will be communicated in due course.

Thank you to our members, sponsors, speakers and delegates for supporting the 2020 Prepaid Symposium. We look forward to seeing you later this year. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
