Canada SynBio 2020 Postponed

March 17, 2020

Given the global situation around COVID-19 and actions being taken by the Canadian, Quebec and Ontario governments, the Canada SynBio Organizing Committee had to make the difficult decision to postpone the upcoming Canada SynBio 2020 conference, originally scheduled for June 3 in Montreal. We are currently working to find a new date and will share the details as soon as they are confirmed.

As Canada SynBio 2020 was part of a larger “SynBio Week” series of events, please see below for their status:

  • June 1-2: The Global BioFoundries Alliance (GBA) has cancelled their AGM.
  • June 4: SynBio 5.0 has been cancelled.

We appreciate your understanding and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. During these difficult times, the health and wellbeing of the attendees, speakers, staff and general public remains our top priority.
