Annual Meeting

Each year, the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative invites panelists and speakers to talk on a central theme concerning municipalities and the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River.



Dear Members,

The GLSLCI Board of Directors met recently to discuss the feasibility of holding our Annual Meeting and Conference in Québec City May 13-15, 2020. Considering all the preventative measures that have been implemented by all levels of government that prohibit all nonessential travel, gatherings and closures of governmental facilities with a view to preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2020 Annual Meeting and Conference in the interest of the safety and well-being of our members. We also fully recognize that your municipalities need your full attention as we deal with this global pandemic.

Rest assured that all registrations will be reimbursed.

During the next few weeks the Cities Initiative will be developing a strategy to keep you informed and up to date on our key issues that we had planned to present and discuss at the Annual Meeting and Conference.

Should you have any questions or require further information please do not hesitate to contact me.


Michelle Morin-Doyle


Deputy Mayor

Quebec City
