We regret to inform you that due to government regulations around the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we need to cancel our Vancouver Conference at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel in Richmond, set to take place from April 16-18, 2020. 

We are simply postponing the whole conference intact to our 2021 annual conference at the same venue from April 8-10, 2021.

We sincerely regret any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your continued support of the Neufeld Institute. We look forward to seeing you in person next year!
