Crane and Rental Association of Canada (CRAC) board of directors have postponed the 2020 conference scheduled for May 27-30 in Vancouver, B.C., and sent out the following statement:

As we activate our crisis management plan, we are doing everything in our power to minimize the financial impact this cancellation/postponement may have on our association and will keep the membership informed over the next few months.

In light of the economic crisis to be faced by all in the coming months, we will not reschedule the conference this year. We are presently considering 2022 to keep the East-West rotation but this may change. An electronic AGM will be schedule toward the end of May or early June.

If you are already registered, we would like to offer you the following options:

1 – We can hold your payment until the new dates have been confirmed.

2 – We can refund you in full. Email to inform us.

If you have contributed as a corporate Partners to sponsor the conference, Claire Bélanger-Parker will be reaching out to you personally to discuss options.

In these times of uncertainty, please take care of yourself and your family. If you are returning from any sort of travel, please self-isolate yourself to protect your loved ones. We will activate our social media platforms so we may stay better connected and informed about each other.

If there is anything, we can do to assist you, do not hesitate to reach out to us. The world as we know it today may never be the same but the friendships and relationships we have developed over the years will remain to support each other in these challenging times.

Kindest regards to all,
