Annual Conference

CAUBO 2020: Cancellation of the CAUBO guestroom block at the Westin Harbour Castle hotel

As we informed you a few days ago, CAUBO 2020 has been cancelled due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. This is to advise you that the Westin Harbour Castle will be cancelling all reservations found under the CAUBO guestroom block. If you reserved a guestroom in the CAUBO block, it will be automatically cancelled by end of day today.

If you booked a room at a different hotel in Toronto, you are responsible for cancelling that reservation.

The CAUBO 2021 Annual Conference will take place in Montreal, Quebec from May 30–June 1, 2021, hosted by McGill University. We hope to see all of you there.

Until then, stay healthy.


CAUBO 2020 Cancelled

In light of the many COVID-19-related restrictions on travel and events put in place by both universities and governments, the CAUBO Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel the CAUBO 2020 Annual Conference in Toronto. We will be in contact with registrants and sponsors shortly about refunds.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.


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.
