COPA 2020 Convention and IAOPA 2020 Postponed


As with many other events affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, COPA has decided to postpone the convention that was to be held in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu (CYJN) on June 25-27, 2020. We are looking to reschedule it in late August, hoping things will be back to a semi-normal state by then and we can start gathering again.

The Annual General Meeting that is usually held sometime during the convention still needs to be held before the end of June, so it will take place through live-streaming. More details to come.

On a similar note, COPA and the IAOPA have also decided to postpone the IAOPA World Assembly that was to be held in Montreal from June 29 to July 3. As this event has more far-reaching implications, with a majority of international travellers, we considered it safest to postpone until sometime next year when all borders are open and airline disruptions are no more of a threat.
