ELEVATION: 2020 Webinar Series

Although the joint CIP/PIBC 2020 National Conference had been rescheduled to July 2022 due to the pandemic, we were excited to launch Elevation: 2020 Webinar Series in November! This was a great opportunity for planners to participate in a series of webinars to elevate the planning practice and join peers from across Canada on a national platform! In the shadow of a global pandemic, Elevation, the theme of the 2020 joint national webinar series, captures the profession's commitment to move forward and upward together.

Thank you to everyone who joined us November 17 - 20, 2020! Recordings of the presentations are available to Elevation attendees. Please check your mobile app and email for access.
