PIBC held our 2021 annual conference - North of Normal - online this year from June 15 to 18, hosted from Whitehorse, Yukon. The decision to proceed with a virtual conference was made in keeping with current public health guidelines, best practices, and expectations with respect to travel and large in-person gatherings. The diverse, educational and comprehensive virtual annual conference was hosted by our PIBC Yukon Chapter with a distinctive Yukon sense and feel, and included unique local elements from Whitehorse. To help ensure that all members ultimately have the opportunity for the full Whitehorse and Yukon conference experience, we will also be looking to return with a future annual conference in person in Whitehorse in the coming years.

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.
