After careful consideration—and with guidance from public health authorities—FCM has made the decision to cancel our 2020 Annual Conference and Trade Show, scheduled to take place June 4-7 in Toronto. 

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our top priority is protecting conference participants, the wider community and our health care system—while staying focused on supporting Canadians through this crisis.

AC2020 was set to bring together more than 2,000 municipal leaders from across Canada, and beyond—along with valued exhibitors, sponsors and partners and who support local governments every single day. It’s a wonderful opportunity for delegates to connect, learn, share and grow. FCM and the City of Toronto were set to put on a phenomenal show. 

Here are some important details on next steps:

  • All delegates and companions will receive full refunds. Registered delegates will receive an email within a week with details on the refund process. We’ll also work with hotel partners to ensure room deposits are refunded.
  • FCM’s AGM and board elections: We’re exploring alternate ways to hold these critical events, and will share details on process and timelines as soon as they are available.
