In-person or virtual Choose the option that best meets your needs!

We are planning a hybrid program that makes the most of each format – with the in-person portion featuring consultation on big-picture themes of organizational, sectoral and economic change – and the virtual portion focusing on skills-building presentations as well as offering interactive engagement opportunities. There will also be intersection points throughout, with virtual and in-person attendees coming together to create a shared Cannexus experience.

Many of you have missed connecting face-to-face with colleagues. At the same time, we’ve all come to appreciate the convenience of virtual events. No matter how you participate, Cannexus will provide an accessible, content-rich and value-packed opportunity for Canada’s career development communities to convene, share and learn.

Have hybrid questions?

Most of us don’t yet have much experience with hybrid conferences. With that in mind, we’ve put together some FAQs to help answer your questions, including:

  1. How should I decide between attending virtually or in-person?
  2. What content will be the same and what will be different?
  3. How will virtual and in-person participants connect?
  4. What health & safety precautions will be taken on-site?
  5. What if I register for in-person and later want to switch to virtual or vice versa?

The Cannexus hybrid experience

Whether you choose in-person or virtual, you will be part of Canada’s largest bilingual career and workforce development conference, exploring the latest research, policy and practice. The conference offers you and your team an essential, empowering – and cost-effective opportunity for education and renewal.
