MESSAGE FROM THE SISP 2019-2020 COMMITTEE


McGill has been monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19, in light of the measures put forth by the provincial and federal governments. Given that we remain unaware of how long this situation will persist, we have made the difficult decision of cancelling the 2020 Summer Institute of School Psychology Conference. This conference will not be available in any online format. Please note that this decision was not made lightly, as the organization committee has been thoroughly planning this event since Fall 2019. The health and safety of all individuals involved in our conference is our main priority, and we respect the guidelines put forth by government and health officials regarding engagement in meetings and travel. 


  • If you have already registered for the event, you will receive a full reimbursement in the coming weeks. 
  • If you have submitted a poster abstract for our competition, your name will be retained for the conference being held in 2021 and we will ensure that you are given the opportunity to submit again with priority submission status.
  • If you have registered to be a volunteer, you will be contacted in the coming weeks regarding the availability of volunteer positions for the 2021 conference.


Our committee appreciates your understanding regarding this decision and thanks you for your continued support of our SISP conferences. We hope to see you for SISP 2021 and wish you all good health!




Alors que la situation du coronavirus (COVID-19) évolue continuellement, la préoccupation principale de McGill demeure la santé et le bien-être de la communauté. À cet effet, nous sommes dans l’obligation d’annuler la conférence SISP2020. La conférence ne sera pas disponible en ligne. Veuillez noter que cette décision n'a pas été prise à la légère. La santé et la sécurité de toutes les personnes impliquées dans notre conférence est notre priorité principale, et nous tenons de respecter les directives émises par le gouvernement et les responsables de la santé.

  • Si vous êtes déjà enregistré, vous recevrez un remboursement dans les semaines qui suivent.
