COVID 19 Updates


Due to evolving concerns over the fast-moving situation with coronavirus COVID-19, the 2020 Physical and Health Education National Conference, scheduled for April 30 - May 2, 2020, is postponed to 2021.

In continuing to monitor the situation and tracking positions from national and provincial health and educational authorities, PHE Canada, PEI Physical Education Association (PEIPEA), and PHE Canada Research Council partners have been working diligently to best meet the needs of physical and health educators and researchers across the country. However, with the health and safety of delegates, partners, staff, volunteers, and PHE community at large being our top priority, the Conference Committee has decided to postpone the Physical and Health Education National Conference to 2021. 

While we are disappointed that we won’t see you in person this year, we are happy to announce that we have succeeded in securing the same beautiful location and time of year for 2021 for the Physical and Health Education National Conference and Research Forum. Stay tuned for the official announcement!
