ACCT Civic Leadership Program and 2020 Leadership Summit has been postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The decision to postpone was made out of an abundance of caution, and due to Canada Government ban of non-essential travel and public gatherings.

We will continue to provide updates regarding future dates on ACCT Foundation Events.
