14th Canadian Masonry Symposium
Planning Around COVID-19 Restrictions

We can appreciate that every jurisdiction and individual employer is going to have differing policies on how such events are going to be handled and how (or if) travel is permitted. This will undoubtedly impact the ability of the participants to attend in person. However, we are committed to running an in-person symposium in 2021, and although its final form may be much different that how the CMS has looked in the past, we feel that it is important to provide a forum for researchers to disseminate their work. The organizing committee is pursuing various options, including virtual participation and hybrid models, and as developments unfold, we will be communicating that information. Please check the Announcements page for updates.

 

Thank you.

HISTORY OF THE CMS

The CMS is Canada’s eminent gathering for masonry related technical topics and fields of inquiry and attracts national and international experts on the design, construction, behaviour and performance of all things masonry. The thirteen previous symposia were hosted by the listed Universities and the indicated locations.
