CCEC 2021 – Now Virtual

October 24, 2021 – October 27, 2021 all-day

Welcome to CCEC, your forum for learning, knowledge exchange, innovation, and celebration of all that Canadian chemical engineering has to offer.

CCEC 2021 is going virtual

The safety of our community comes first. With a fourth wave of COVID-19 underway The Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering has made the difficult decision to turn CCEC 2021 into a virtual event.

We’re sure you have a lot of questions about what this means for the conference. Here are a few changes you can expect.


The registration fees for the conference have been decreased. Visit the CCEC 2021 website to see the new registration fees. Anyone who has paid the full registration fee for the in-person conference will be reimbursed for the difference in early October.

If you are not interested in taking part in the virtual conference but have completed your registration, please contact the CIC for a refund before Oct. 1, 2021.

Presentation format

The virtual conference will take place over CIC’s virtual conference platform (X-CD). Using the platform, you will be able to create your itinerary, chat with other attendees, visit exhibitor booths, and access links for each of the live sessions.

Technical sessions will take place live over Zoom. Posters will be viewable using the virtual conference platform, and office hours will allow attendees to chat with the poster presenters.

Virtual exhibition hall

The virtual conference platform will include a virtual exhibition hall where attendees can interact live with industry leaders and partners, and engage with partners during live events.

Stay tuned

We’ll be working hard to answer all your questions about this new virtual format as quickly as possible over the coming weeks. Look for more information on CCEC 2021 and its new virtual format in your inbox, on our website, and on our social media channels in the near future.
