The Canadian Collision Industry Forum (CCIF) announced that the CCIF in-person event, initially scheduled for February 3 – 4, 2022 in Toronto, Ontario, has been cancelled due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 restrictions, the increase in cases of the Omicron variant, and concerns for the health and safety of participants and our community.
“The safety of all CCIF stakeholders is our first priority while planning the highly-anticipated CCIF events.
Unfortunately, the recent surge of COVID-19 cases has suggested cancelling the Toronto event was the most
prudent step to take. We look forward to the Montreal event in June, as the CCIF Steering Committee is
working on strategies that will add significant value to the collision repair ecosystem. We look forward to
sharing the advancements. Many thanks to all sponsors and stakeholders for your support and empathy
during our journey to COVID-19 recovery.” said Paul Prochilo, Chair, CCIF Steering Committee.
“This decision was as difficult as the previous ones we have had to make. We were really looking forward to
reconnecting and seeing everybody, but your health and safety come first! Planning is still underway for
our Montreal event in June and our Vancouver event in October.” said Caroline Lacasse, Director, CCIF.
CCIF wishes to extend a special thank you to all of its sponsors and other contributors involved in the
planning of CCIF Toronto.
