2022 Annual Conference


“Value Beyond Numbers”

Tuesday, November 15 – Friday, November 18, 2022

We are pleased to announce the launch of the 2022 CAGFO Annual Conference “Value Beyond Numbers”. This will be a virtual  conference again and we invite you to attend your virtual conference of choice from November 15 – 18, 2022. Our decision to continue with a virtual delivery is based on the following factors:

  • Recognition that there are municipalities who are restricting staff travel for the balance of 2022
  • Some individuals are expressing continued concern over covid
  • This offers an opportunity for more members from across Canada to attend
  • We are utilizing a new dynamic platform that both delegates and sponsors/exhibitors will enjoy

We are in the final stretch of conference planning and we look forward to presenting the full “Value Beyond Numbers” program to you in the coming weeks. Stay tuned to our weekly e-broadcast and website for new information as it becomes available.

As a sneak peek, in addition to our two confirmed keynote speakers Ron Tite (Leadership) and Dr. Bill Howett (Mental Health & Diversity), we also have the Senior Economist of CIBC Capital Markets presenting the Annual Economic Update and Michael Puskaric returning for the Annual PSAB Update. Additional hot topics being pursued include Budgeting for Inflation, Long Range Financial Planning in the 2020’s, Risks and Disasters, Asset Management and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG). Forums on various topics will offer you the opportunity to connect directly with your peers.

The 2022 Conference theme “Value Beyond Numbers” will be reflected in a program that continues to offer the relevant and exciting presentations and discussions that finance officers from across  Canada have come to expect from CAGFO and even better, they can be enjoyed from the comfort of home or office. And since we believe that real professional development is more than just being   able to report verifiable hours to your professional association, delegates will also have the  opportunity to debate hot topic issues with peers and participate in interactive discussion forums that will ensure you can apply what you learned and be more effective in your careers.

CAGFO is also planning a number of social activities to keep you fresh throughout the conference. You can look forward to an artist session for all levels and maybe even some yoga sessions to keep you at optimal participation levels!
CAGFO is also offering the group registration options again that allow for all of your colleagues to attend for one low price. Early bird rates for individual registrations are available until 11:59pm September 16th. Discounted group rates are also available for your convenience.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2022 CAGFO Annual Conference “Value Beyond  Numbers” November 15 – 18, 2022.
