Everything you need to know about present, past and future TAC conferences!

2020- Halifax-March 26-27, 2020


TO:  All Registered Delegates of TAC 2020 in Halifax

FROM:  TAC Board of Directors

Date:  March 11, 2020

Following extensive discussions and following recommendations to the Board of Directors of the Trauma Association of Canada (TAC) by Dr. Robert Strang (Nova Scotia Chief Medical Officer of Health) received late on March 10th, it is now clear that the TAC Annual Scientific Meeting and Conference scheduled March 25-27, 2020 in Halifax must be cancelled. This decision is a direct response to the evolving risk associated with COVID-19 and is motivated by our desire to protect both the public and the health care workers who would be attending the conference as delegates.

With regards to the pre-meeting courses and committee meetings:

  • All pre-meeting education courses and in-person committee meetings are cancelled.
  • For the AIME course scheduled for March 24, please contact Gail Chapman at gchapman@caep.ca as this course is run by the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians (CAEP)
  • Accreditation Symposium – attempts will be made to reformat this as a virtual meeting or reschedule at a future date.
  • Committee and subgroup Chairs will be in touch as some of these meetings may be rescheduled as teleconferences or virtual meetings.
  • Annual General Meeting on March 26, 2020- will be rescheduled as a teleconference at a future date.

With regards to registration fees paid, we ask for your patience as we work through this cancellation process.

With regards to your hotel reservations:

  • If your reservation was made by Kate Mahon at the TAC office, then it has been cancelled and you do not have to call hotel.
  • If you made your own reservation you must contact the hotel directly at numbers below, providing your confirmation number for faster service.

    Cambridge Suites – 1-800-565-1263 or askhalifax@cambridgesuiteshotel.com
    Any reservations not cancelled will be charged for non arrival

Once again, we all share in the disappointment at this unfortunate and quickly evolving turn of world events.  It will take us some time to coordinate all that needs to be done now to cancel this event.  We will keep you updated over the next few days.

TAC President (on behalf of the Board of Directors)
