2021 Annual Meeting

After careful deliberation, the SPD Executive Committee has decided our 46th Annual Meeting will not be held in-person in Toronto this July. It would not be safe nor practical to hold a live meeting given the city's current COVID-19 cases, concerns about crossing the border, and possible required quarantines. We are disappointed that we will once again not be able to gather, but we are confident our decision is in the best interest of the membership and broader community.

We will have live general sessions across three days - Thursday, July 8 through Saturday, July 10. Based on your feedback from last year, we are scheduling more live sessions, and having only one weekend day session. All live sessions will be recorded and available through the end of 2021.
