After further conversations with our CAiP community, and given the continued uncertainties about the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided that we will be combining this year’s CAiP EAST Forum with our CAiP QUEBEC & ATLANTIC Forum.
By combining these two forums, we are able to bring you both a larger combined audience for bigger networking experience, as well as an enhanced program, that will be able to provide more answers around what is happening today within the alternative investments and pension funds industry.
While we realize that you and many of your colleagues from across Canada were looking forward to coming to Niagra-on-the-Lake this coming July, we are excited to welcome you to our combined CAiP Forum in Montebello, Q.C.

Alternative assets under management reached US$8.8-trillion globally last year and are expected to hit US$14-trillion by 2023, according to Preqin, an alternatives research firm.
Alternatives are undergoing continual changes going into 2020 — especially with an increased emphasis on ESG. It now permeates all alternatives — and that needs to be completely understood.
