Canadian Society of Forensic Science 2020 Conference

Message from the CSFS 2020 Conference Organizing Committee

Dear valued members, 

In light of recent concerns regarding the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the Canadian Society of Forensic Science 2020 Conference Organizing Committee has made the difficult decision to postpone the conference. While we recognize this represents a significant disruption, we believe a pro-active approach is appropriate for both our membership and the greater community. 

The conference is being postponed to May 2021. 

In lieu of the conference, we will be working to provide free, value added opportunities for our membership and the greater Canadian forensic community, including:

  • Online keynote presentation from Dr. Daryl J. Mayers (members only portal) [To be confirmed]
  • Online workshop from Dr. Cecilia Hageman, et al. “Law school for a day” (members only portal)
  • CSFS Poster Twitter Conference (open to public – May 27th, 2020; see Call for Abstracts page for details)

We thank everyone who submitted workshop ideas and abstracts. A full refund of any registration and accommodation fees will be provided. We look forward to convening in May 2021. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at
