Annual Conference


CAUBO 2019 is coming to HALIFAX, NS!

From June 9-11, 2019, the Annual CAUBO Conference heads to Halifax! This year, three universities and one organization will host the conference: Saint Mary’s University, Mount Saint Vincent University, NSCAD University, and along with Interuniversity Services (ISI).

CAUBO 2019 will celebrate and explore higher education innovation. In addition to formal programming at the newly built Halifax Convention Centre, you’ll get many opportunities to network and share best practices with your colleagues from institutions across Canada, connect with sponsors, and take in some of the cities most recognizable landmarks.

Halifax is a vibrant seaport city famous for its warm and welcoming Maritime hospitality. Delegates can take in some of the plentiful Halifax attractions from breathtaking views, amazing beaches, historic museums, and much more. Known for its manicured parks and gardens nestled between heritage buildings, the city has been gaining a reputation for its arts and culinary scene, and has expanded its craft-brew culture. Halifax’s longevity ensures something of appeal for everyone.

CAUBO has room blocks at four host hotels all within walking distance to the convention centre. After last year’s record-breaking year, we encourage you to reserve early to avoid disappointment.

About the CAUBO Annual Conference

The conference is CAUBO’s flagship professional development event, and takes place in mid-June of each year. It brings together university administrators from across Canada working in a variety of functional areas such as finance, human resources, treasury, procurement, facilities, internal audit, and IT. Conference sessions focus on trends and hot topics in higher education administration, with the aim of sending delegates home with best practices and information they can put to use right away at their jobs. Evening social and networking events provide a great opportunity to relax and reconnect with friends and colleagues and enjoy great food and entertainment in interesting and vibrant venues.

The conference location rotates among CAUBO’s four regions: Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, and West. CAUBO’s member universities take turns hosting the conference, and the host selects the annual theme. More than 600 people attend the CAUBO conference annually.
