The Annual Osgoode Constitutional Cases conference which was scheduled for April 3rd 2020 in Toronto has been cancelled.
We will be issuing full refunds to all ticket buyers via the Eventbrite online platform as soon as possible.
We base the decision to cancel on a variety of factors including notices from our university which urged us to consider deferring all travel plans, suggestions from Public Health Canada about mass gatherings (see here), and our understanding of the importance of at least slowing the spread of this virus in Canada. We are cancelling because of our sense of responsibility to the broader community, and the small community of constitutional law enthusiasts who have made this conference such a yearly delight.
We deeply regret the lost opportunity to reconvene in Toronto and talk about the 2019 cases. We look forward to another chance to get together in the future.
If you have questions or concerns, please be in touch with us at the email below and we will respond as soon as possible.
Professors Sonia Lawrence, Benjamin L. Berger and Emily Kidd White
