SFU Meeting, Event and Conference Services
Federal and provincial health authorities are currently advising against all non-essential gatherings of any size, and requiring that all Canadians conform to prescribed physical distancing measures. Therefore, all in-person university events and meetings will be cancelled until June 1st, including off campus events. While many events have already been cancelled, campus event planners will be contacted soon about cancelling or postponing remaining events and communicating with any event partners.
Many groups are moving to an on-line platform through BlueJeans or Zoom. Please contact IT Services via firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with this technology. All requests to IT Services for support will be prioritized to support critical university functions as determined by the University COVID-19 response teams.
In the case of extenuating circumstances that require an in-person meeting on or off campus during this time, a request may be submitted to Joanne Curry, VP External Relations (email@example.com) describing the event, why an in-person meeting is deemed necessary, and the measures that will be taken to mitigate risk and comply with health authority directives.
Gatherings scheduled to take place after June 1st are still being analyzed by the COVID19 events and meetings committee. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to keep them updated on any changes that are being made.
