Canadian Association of Gift Planners COVID-19 Policy
The 2019 Novel Coronavirus or COVID-19 is an extremely contagious virus that spreads easily through person-to-person contact and can cause serious illness, long-term health complications, and/or death. Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, loss of taste or smell, and shortness of breath, among others.

CAGP is committed to providing a safe experience for all our delegates when attending a CAGP event. We prioritize the health, safety and social well-being of all delegates, guests, sponsors, speakers, volunteers, and staff. We continue to monitor guidance from Public Health for regulations and guidelines.

CAGP will continue to monitor the Public Health orders and instructions with respect to the Annual Conference and will communicate any and all updates with registered delegates. We have also implemented the following safety measures for all CAGP events:

All delegates must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. “Fully vaccinated” means that a participant has received a full series of a vaccine that is authorized by Health Canada, or any combination of such vaccines, and that a minimum of 14 days have passed since they received their final COVID-19 vaccination.

Upon request, all delegates must show event organizers proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This proof must be in a form approved by a provincial Public Health authority.

If a delegate is unable to provide proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, they must show proof of medical exemption. Acceptable proof of medical exemption varies by province.

Delegates are responsible for ensuring that their proof of medical exemption complies with Public Health requirements in the province where the event is being held.

Public Health Compliance
All delegates are asked to review the Public Health authority information that is applicable in their home province, and in the province where the event is being held, before attending any CAGP event. Each delegate is responsible for their own health and safety and must ensure that they comply with the appropriate Public Health requirements. The latest information from Public Health authorities in each province is available online.

No delegate may attend a CAGP event if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, if they have an active case of COVID-19 at the time of a CAGP event, or if they have been directed to self-isolate by a Public Health authority.

Number of Delegates
CAGP will limit registration to ensure that local Public Health requirements for physical distancing can be maintained
Physical space

Event meeting spaces will be set to ensure that local Public Health requirements for physical distancing can be maintained. Networking opportunities will also allow for physical distancing.

CAGP will enforce masking requirements in accordance with applicable local Public Health requirements
Sanitation stations

As the situation changes, CAGP will continue to review and modify these precautions, and may choose to eliminate some safety measures if it is safe to do so.
