Early Bird Deadline is April 24, 2020

From June 14–16, 2020, the CAUBO Annual Conference heads to Toronto! The University of Toronto is our host for this year’s conference.

Join us at CAUBO 2020 to experience professional development that’s designed to make an immediate impact on your day-to-day challenges in the higher education sector. At the Westin Harbour Castle on Toronto’s waterfront, learn about current trends and best practices in your functional area during expert-led sessions and spend some time networking with colleagues from across Canada who share your challenges and interests. You’ll also have opportunities to connect with sponsors and take in some of the city’s landmark attractions during social events.

Monday’s keynote speaker is MaRS Discovery District CEO Yung Wu, who will speak about Connecting Post-secondary Education to the Start-up World. Hear what the team at MaRS is doing to transform big ideas into global companies and make Canada a leader in the innovation economy. Our Tuesday speaker, Dr. Andrea J. Levinson, is Psychiatrist-in-Chief of Health and Wellness at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). She will speak about the factors exacerbating mental health issues in the university student population and what can be done to help students who need it.

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.
