REB West Conference Cancelled
The health and well-being of our communities is top priority and as a result of the widespread uncertainty due to COVID-19, and in accordance with the ban on events of more than 50 people and travel restrictions, the conference planning team of REB West have decided to cancel the conference planned for Kelowna in June 2020.
Although we had not opened registration yet, we know that many people in our research ethics community have saved-the-date for the conference. We trust that all members of the community are taking the necessary precautions to protect themselves and their families, and we thank the health care and other essential service providers for continuing their efforts to keep us going and healthy during this time. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all navigate uncertain and challenging times.
