Capstone Summit Update

After carefully considering the evolving situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19), which the WHO has just declared a pandemic, and following the Public Health Agency’s advice on mass gatherings during the outbreak, we have made the decision to cancel the Capstone Summit and Future Innovator Award Ceremony, scheduled to take place on May 4 and 5, 2020 in Toronto. We are exploring a variety of alternative and virtual options, and will update this page once details are available.

This was a very difficult decision for us to make. We have been looking forward to the Capstone Summit, and to this opportunity to share insights on our work with caregivers, highlight the work of the Changing CARE teams, celebrate our 25th anniversary – and recognize our amazing Future Innovator Award winners. However, we believe this is the most responsible decision. Many of our invited guests are caregivers for older adults, or for people with compromised immune systems who could be at higher risk from the illness. Other guests from the medical community could have important responsibilities outside the Capstone Summit in May. The health and safety of our invited guests is our priority.

While we will not be able to meet in person in May, we are exploring different alternatives (including a virtual conference). We will be sure to find an excellent way to celebrate our award winners – and to deliver the conference sessions and presentations we had planned. In the meantime, we ask that you continue to hold Tuesday May 5 in your calendars as we explore the possibility of a shorter, virtual session. We will share more information as soon as we have it over the next couple of weeks. Please stay tuned for future updates.

We would recommend that you cancel any travel arrangements you have made to attend the Capstone Summit at your earliest convenience.
