The Global Pandemic that started in March of 2020 has changed the way we work, meet, and live. CFA Societies in Canada are working hard to continue to deliver quality events, provide value to both our members and non-members and uphold the tradition of our Annual Forecast Dinners.

This live discussion, moderated by Geoff Colvin, will be brought to you using a high-quality production platform and full production team. We invite members and guests from the finance and greater professional communities across Canada, to register for this marquee event where you can enjoy the virtual presentation from anywhere.
