2020 Online National Animal Welfare Conference
May 20 & 21, 2020

In order to comply with national and provincial health regulations, Humane Canada™ cancelled the in-person seventh annual National Animal Welfare Conference, which was set to take place in Victoria, BC March 28 – 31.

We didn’t want to miss the opportunity to provide you with a fantastic conference program, so we transitioned from the in-person conference to an online conference this past May. 

We are happy to share with you the following facts from the online conference:

  • 886 people registered, 
  • 36 sessions, 
  • 23 sponsors, and 
  • 56 amazing speakers!

The online National Animal Welfare Conference welcomed:

  • SPCA, humane societies and shelter/rescue employees
  • Students in any discipline,
  • Veterinarians and veterinary staff,
  • Academics,
  • Researchers and scientists,
  • Animal enforcement personnel,
  • Animal care professionals who work with companion animals, farm animals or wildlife, and.
  • People who advocate for animals or those who have an interest in animal welfare.

This two-day online conference offered attendees the chance to:

  • Network with attendees, speakers & sponsors from around the world including but not limited to Australia, Venezuela, and the USA.
  • Interact and share common thoughts in conversation circles to learn from one another
  • Share photos of their pets during the conference breaks 
  • Learn more about our sponsors in the sponsor hall and gain new business connections

Thank you to our presenting sponsor PetSmart Charities® of Canada and to all of our sponsors and speakers who helped make this event a success.
