CANCELLED _ ANNULÉ

MARCH 13, 2020 – The Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) has cancelled their upcoming international Annual Conference 2020 that was to take place in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan from May 27-31, 2020.

In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, CSCE has been closely following all updates from the World Health Organization, the Public Health Agency of Canada, as well as provincial and federal governments. With the latest recommendations and a deep appreciation for our civil responsibility to participate in all necessary measures to reduce the impact of this outbreak, there was no question that cancelling this conference was the appropriate action to take.

CSCE fully appreciates the efforts, resources and commitments that have gone into the planning of this conference and will take immediate action to put together next steps and will provide further communications imminently to all those involved. Any paid CSCE Conference registrations will be refunded.

As a global organization, we fully appreciate our role under these circumstances and trust that our colleagues and neighbors will follow suit so we may all get through this situation as quickly as possible.

Over the coming weeks, we are committed to setting the example of remaining calm, compassionate and considerate of others.

Le 13 mars 2020 – La Société canadienne du génie civil (SCGC) a annulé son congrès international annuel qui devait avoir lieu à Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, du 27 au 31 mai 2020.

En regard de la pandémie mondiale de la COVID-19, la SCGC suit de près toutes les mises à jour émises par l’Organisation mondiale de la Santé, l’Agence de la santé publique du Canada ainsi que le gouvernement fédéral et les gouvernements provinciaux. Compte tenu des récentes recommandations, et dans un souci de responsabilité civile visant la participation à toutes les mesures de réduire l’impact de l’épidémie, il ne faisait aucun doute que l’annulation du congrès était la décision appropriée.

La SCGC apprécie grandement les efforts, les ressources et les engagements qui ont pris place afin de planifier ce congrès. Nous prenons immédiatement les mesures nécessaires pour définir et mettre en place les prochaines étapes et communiquerons celles-ci à tous ceux concernés. Toutes les inscriptions déjà payées pour le congrès de la SCGC seront remboursées.

En tant qu’organisation mondiale, nous sommes conscients de notre rôle dans ces circonstances et l’assumons pleinement. Nous sommes convaincus que nos collègues et voisins emboiteront le pas afin que cette situation soit résolue pour tous le plus rapidement possible.

Au cours des prochaines semaines, nous nous engageons à montrer l’exemple en agissant avec calme, compassion et considération pour les autres.

La Société canadienne du génie civil

We are very pleased to extend greetings on behalf of the Local Organizing Committee for the CSCE’s 48th annual conference, which will be held in beautiful Saskatoon.  We hope you enjoy the wonderful hospitality that makes Saskatchewan one of the best places to visit in Canada!

Our conference theme is Tradition and the Future. Steeped in tradition and valued for innovation, modern civil engineering bridges the gap between what came before and what is yet to come. CSCE 2020 in Saskatoon brings a diversity of perspectives and grand traditions of civil engineering, building on the foundations of our profession, and looking to the future of an ever changing world, new expectations, and increasing focus on diversity, inclusion, and climate.

We have secured several high-profile and interesting keynote speakers around the conference theme and the general interest and challenges of the professional community we are all part of. We will kick off the conference with a Diversity Panel presentation that will set the stage for the rest of the conference.

The technical program is strong with specialty conferences in Environmental, Structural, Engineering Materials, along with technical tracks in History of Engineering and Asset and Infrastructure Management, among others.

This year’s historic site commemoration will dedicate the South Saskatchewan River Project, including the Gardiner Dam, which will be celebrating its 53rd of operation in 2020. The Technical Tours will demonstrate the leading-edge technology and research advancements in Saskatchewan including light source technology, medical vaccines, agricultural advancement and environmental treatments.

The social program and conference events will reflect the strong hospitality that Saskatchewan is proud of, along with providing the ability to increase your knowledge of aboriginal history and diversity challenges we all face. The conference will provide many opportunities for networking and establishing new connections.

We are excited to have you visit our province and to let you in on Our Little Secret, Saskatoon Shines and the land of the living skies awaits you!
