Information about the CFLA-FCAB National Forum and Manitoba Libraries Conference related to COVID-19

Posted in Conference

Dear Members and Delegates,

This message has been prepared for those attending the Manitoba Libraries Conference and the CFLA-FCAB National Forum April 6-8, 2020 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Regarding COVID-19. 

The well-being and experience of delegates is our top priority. We appreciate that many delegates are joining us from out of province for this event. To date there are no confirmed instances of COVID-19 in Manitoba. The risk of acquiring COVID-19 in Manitoba remains low and Manitoba officials are working closely with the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to monitor the situation.

Updates from the Government of Canada and Provincial and Territorial Updates including prevention, risks, and travel advice have been collected on

Together, MLA and CFLA-FCAB will continue to discuss and monitor this situation while planning for the best possible experience for all delegates.  If there are any notable changes to our conference schedule or plans, we will provide expedient updates.

We look forward to hosting you in just 4 weeks in Winnipeg, Manitoba April 6-8.

Please contact us at if you wish to discuss further or have questions.
