Cancellation of the 2020 Higher Education Summit and Premier's Awards gala

As colleges need to focus on managing the wide-ranging and ongoing challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, Colleges Ontario has made the difficult decision to cancel the Higher Education Summit and Premier’s Awards gala for this year.

We will continue to run the Board Excellence and Leadership Excellence programs. Sessions such as good governance and board orientation that are usually in-person pre-conference sessions at the Higher Education Summit will be offered remotely in 2020. More information on dates, times and formats will be released in the near future.

Thank you and we hope to see you at the 2021 conference and gala, which are set for November 27 to 29, 2021.

November 28, 2021 - November 30, 2021 | Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel
