Given the current situation around COVID-19, HSCN has made the decision to postpone our 2020 Conference to a still to be determined date later this year.

For each of the past 13 years, we have looked forward to our conference and to convening our community and members. The learnings, conversations, inspiration and innovations that unfold allow us to offer you an experience which helps examine and solve some of the toughest challenges for healthcare supply chain.

Over the past weeks, we have been monitoring and evaluating the situation around COVID-19 very closely. Our primary objective has been around taking necessary measures to protect the health and wellbeing of our members, employees and partners. As a result, and although disappointing, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone our 2020 Conference.

We will be working diligently in the coming weeks to recreate our conference for a later time this year. Our Board of Directors, my colleagues and I look forward to seeing you all there – as delegates, sponsors, exhibitors, presenters, speakers, instructors and partners. We value your understanding and continued support of our organization.

The safety and health of our Canadian healthcare workers is critically important, and their roles cannot be compromised. Neither can the focus required within the workplaces of all of our members in the coming weeks. We also fully recognize that our members are exceptionally busy managing the pandemic within their organizations on an ongoing basis.

In the meantime, should you have any questions or concerns, please email us at and one of us will respond or call you as quickly as we are able.
