WELCOME TO THE 2019 NATIONAL CONFERENCE

As this year’s conference Chair, it is my absolute pleasure to introduce to you our preliminary program for the FEI Canada 2019 Annual Conference in beautiful Blue Mountain, Ontario.

 

Our conference Committee has been busy planning to make sure this is one of the biggest and best conferences in FEI Canada history. Conference attendees will gain unique insights from experienced CFOs such as Darlene Dasent (University Health Network), Gord Nelson (Cineplex) and Leen Li (Wealthsimple), to name but a few. We are also excited to announce our fantastic opening keynote speaker and proud Canadian: Rick Mercer.

 

We are expecting this year’s conference to be a sold out event, so to avoid disappointment, we encourage everyone to register sooner rather than later.  You can register here.

 

We hope you can join us for what is sure to be a memorable three days of thought leadership, networking and social activities. Great people know great people, so please encourage your friends, colleagues and further network to attend as well.

 

We will provide further updates to the program as more fantastic speakers are confirmed. In the meantime, if you have any questions, suggestions or comments about any aspect of the conference, please reach out to any of our team.

 

Best regards,

RUSS WONG

ABOUT
BLUE MOUNTAIN

Nestled between the Niagara Escarpment and the crystal-clear waters of Georgian Bay, the picturesque Blue Mountain Village is Southern Ontario’s premiere four-season destination. Experience a cobblestoned pedestrian village framed by turn-of-the-century Ontario architecture.

 

An incredible natural retreat, the Village offers a wide variety of things to do. You can set your heart racing with zip lines, ropes courses, hiking, biking, Segway tours and more. For a more relaxing getaway, stroll their cobblestone streets, pamper yourself at the spa, take a sunny afternoon drive on the Apple Pie Trail or enjoy the ambiance of the mountains.

 

Only 90 minutes outside Toronto, this destination will inspire you.
