Dear WCHSE Community,

On behalf of the Western Canada Health Sciences Educators (WCHSE) executive, we wanted to express our gratitude for your support of our conference. 

After careful consideration and based on recent reports from the Government of Canada and World Health Organization (WHO) about the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we are announcing the cancellation of the WCHSE 2020 Conference, which was scheduled to take place at Thompson Rivers University (TRU) in Kamloops on May 13-15, 2020. Our primary concern at this point is protecting everyone involved with the conference as well as our home communities post travel.

The decision to cancel the conference, was not made lightly.  We recognize and greatly appreciate the hard work and dedication of our WCHSE planning committee at TRU, led by Dr. Wendy McKenzie.

We sincerely regret this cancellation and apologize for any inconvenience it may cause you. Please review your airline’s COVID-19 cancellation policies for booked flights. If you have already booked your accommodation, please contact the Sandman Signature Hotel in Kamloops to cancel your reservation. We will be issuing refunds to vendors and conference registrants in the coming weeks, please be patient with us as we go through this process.If you have not already, please register as a WCHSE member and attend our virtual AGM to be held in May. 

Please know that we are working to refund conference, pre-conference and vendor registrations. We will be reaching out to you shortly for any information required for the refund. This process may take a couple of weeks, we thank-you for your patience at this busy time.  

 Sincerely,

WCHSE Executive
