Disclaimer: CIMVHR is currently planning an in-person Forum in Halifax, Nova Scotia, for October 2022. Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic and to ensure the health and safety of our stakeholders, CIMVHR will continue to monitor the pandemic closely and follow Provincial guidelines to determine if we need to move to a virtual format.
