As global attention and concern increases around the Covid-19 virus, Inventures is actively monitoring information from provincial, Canadian and International partners, including the World Health Organization, to understand risks, travel implications and global impacts.

The health and safety of all Inventures attendees, staff and volunteers is our top priority.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses. Some cause respiratory illness in people, ranging from mild common colds to severe illnesses. The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared COVID-2019 a public health emergency.

We continue to monitor the situation closely and will provide regular updates as more information emerges about the risks and recommended actions.

If you are unable to attend Inventures2020 for any reason – travel restrictions, employer travel policies or personal reasons, please contact
