SUSPENSION OF 2020 CAP LECTURE TOUR TALKS EFFECTIVE SATURDAY 2020 MARCH 14 (see update below)
In monitoring advice from national and regional health authorities, observing precedence set by many public-facing organizations, and considering the health and safety of student, staff, faculty, and our speakers, the CAP Board has decided to formally suspend the remainder of the CAP Lecture Tour for the current academic year, effective after any lectures scheduled to Friday, March 13.
This action is taken in direct response to the current COVID-19 uncertainties and the closure, yesterday, of Laurentian University in response to a confirmed case within their community and the anticipation that this measure may ultimately be taken by other universities across Canada in the upcoming month. Once again, the health and safety of our speakers and the students and faculty who would be attending the lecture are of paramount importance to us.
Depending on how the pandemic plays out, we will consider running the cancelled lectures in the Fall 2020 period.
2020 LECTURE TOUR RESUMES as virtual lectures, starting in November 2020.
The dates in the list below will be updated as talk schedules become available.
