CBIC goes virtual for 2020


As 2020 continues to unfold, the Canadian beef industry and the world are in unknown territory and all regularly scheduled events are adapting. The CBIC board, compromised of the Beef Cattle Research Council, Canada Beef, Canadian Beef Breeds Council, Canadian Cattle Association, National Cattle Feeders Association, have made the difficult decision to postpone the conference scheduled for August 11-13th, 2020 until August 17-19th, 2021 in Penticton, British Columbia.

“It is unfortunate that we are unable to meet face-to-face in 2020, but there are a lot of factors that we had to consider in these extraordinary times,” says Judy Guichon, Chair of CBIC. “We are excited that B.C. will still be able to host the event in 2021 and showcase everything B.C. has to offer!” 

CBIC is in the process of planning a virtual conference for Aug 11-13th, 2020 so the Canadian beef industry can connect, learn, and support one another. This event will be offered as a free online tool for the entire industry. As an integral part of the connectivity pillar in the National Beef Strategy, CBIC wants to continue to offer an opportunity for the industry to come together.

Agency AGM

The Agency’s AGM is generally held in conjunction with the Canadian Beef Industry Conference, however due to COVID-19 restrictions and the safety of our stakeholders, the conference has been moved to virtual delivery. Stay tuned for more information on how we plan to host our 2020 AGM to ensure Canadian producers and stakeholders have their voice heard at our meeting.
