Annual Government Interface Information

The Interface is an excellent forum for you to hear and virtually network with the top regulators on the key issues and initiatives facing our industry sector. Due to the pandemic, issues other than COVID-19 have ebbed and flowed over the last year. CCSPA is gathering key government speakers to speak to the issues, the challenges to the files due to the pandemic, and next steps. CCSPA members will have the opportunity to pose questions directly to the people making the policies that impact their companies. After our virtual meeting, you will be completely up to date on the latest updates on government policies and programs that affect your company, plus gain insight on the changes for key contacts within those departments.
