Annual Conference

CAUBO 2021 Conference to be fully virtual

After consultation with our Board, staff, and members, we have decided to present the CAUBO 2021 annual conference and pre-conference seminars in a fully virtual format. While this decision was made because of the ongoing pandemic restrictions that remain in place across Canada, we are pleased that members will be able to participate in the conference no matter their location, without any risk to their health or safety.

The conference will include all the dynamic, relevant, and thought-provoking content you have come to expect from this event, including plenty of time for active engagement and networking with your peers and colleagues from across Canada. We will capitalize on available virtual technologies to provide the peer-to-peer exchanges and networking in smaller functional groups that we know are highly valued parts of CAUBO’s in-person conferences.

Our colleagues at McGill University are hopeful that they will host us all in beautiful Montreal when we are able to meet again in person.  CAUBO thanks McGill for their enthusiasm and support over the last year as the planning process got underway.

We will have more details for you regarding the conference dates, schedule, programming, and specific format very soon. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to bringing CAUBO 2021 directly to you — wherever you are.


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.
