NOTICE: 2021 Events and Speaking Engagements
Please note that during COVID-19, the CNPS will be accepting a limited number of requests for private webinar presentations and will not be accepting in-person speaking engagements. The CNPS will consider private webinars with 90-day advance notice (August 1, 2021 and onward) and for groups of over 25 beneficiaries. Please complete the following event request form, and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
Presentations and Events: What you need to know before making a request
When the request for a live speaking engagement comes from nurses, CNPS will generally bear the costs incurred for a CNPS lawyer to travel to and stay for the event. Booking of the venue and any related costs are the responsibility of the requestor.
In scheduling a live speaking engagement, the requestor must generally commit to a minimum of 50 CNPS beneficiary attendees. CNPS retains discretion to consider extenuating circumstances and may agree to do a live presentation to fewer than 50 beneficiary attendees.
When the request for a live speaking engagement comes from a health institution, including a health region, the requestor will generally bear the costs incurred for the speaking engagement.
The confirmation deadline for the speaking engagement is 3 weeks prior to the date if air travel is required by CNPS and 2 weeks prior to the date if other forms of travel are used. If the speaking engagement is cancelled by the requestor, CNPS may impose a cancellation fee to recover its costs incurred.
The cost of webcasts and teleconferences of CNPS speaking engagements is generally borne by CNPS if the webcast or teleconference is done using products and services owned or licensed to CNPS. If a requestor wants to use its own products and services for the webcast or teleconference and there is an associated cost, the requestor will generally bear the cost.
