The International Confederation of Principals (ICP) regrets to announce that our planned global convention, scheduled for July 2022 in Toronto, Canada, has been cancelled. The convention was to be hosted by the Ontario Principals’ Council, in partnership with l’Association des directions et directions adjointes des écoles franco-ontariennes and the Catholic Principals’ Council of Ontario. The continued uncertainty and restrictions worldwide associated with COVID-19 – including ongoing case numbers, the inability to secure vaccinations, physical space limitations, enhanced VISA requirements, airline stipulations and restrictions upon returning home following international travel – make it impossible for us to safely and responsibly plan this event, and for participants to attend.

While all our organizations are disappointed with the cancellation, the ICP looks forward to continuing to hold this biennial event in the future.
