MCLD Proudly Presents – Saturday, April 18, 2020

The Montreal Centre for Learning Disabilities, along with our sponsors, was looking forward to welcoming you to this year’s conference on executive functioning with our keynote speaker, Sarah Ward. However, given the continuing concerns over COVID-19 and in keeping with the recommendations of government and public health officials to avoid large gatherings, we have made the decision to cancel the conference scheduled for April 18th, 2020. Our decision was reinforced by this morning’s announcement to restrict border crossing between Canada and the U.S.A. Moreover, we made the decision because we are committed to ensuring the health and well-being of our conference registrants, volunteers and American keynote speaker. All conference registrants will be contacted shortly and will be eligible for a full reimbursement. We are also in the process of exploring the feasibility of rescheduling the conference with Sarah Ward for the spring of 2021. As we move through these uncertain weeks, we wish that you and your loved ones stay in good health.
