COVID-19 and our events

The well-being of our executive community is of paramount importance. For the safety and security of all we have decided to postpone or cancel select events. As such, the 2020 Leadership Symposium scheduled for May 26-27, has been cancelled.
It is with great anticipation that we look forward to welcoming you to the APEX Leadership Summit 2021.
Please stay tuned for updates on our other learning events as we roll out our new and revised plan.


Unless specified, events are free of charge, and are open to all executives.

  • Executive Insights Series:
    Brought to you in partnership with Deloitte Canada.
    This unique and exclusive development opportunity specifically targets EX-02s and EX-03s (or equivalents). The series is intended to help prepare EX-02- and EX-03-level executives for effective leadership by broadening their leadership horizons and toolbox. Selected executives should be committed to attending all three sessions (approximately nine hours in total) from January 2020 onwards – see full program. While Deputy Heads may nominate any EX-2 or 3 of their choice, it would be preferable if the nominees were or became members of APEX before the start of the series. (Membership information) Executives are to be nominated by January 8, 2020. Details have been provided directly to the office of each Deputy Head.
