| Dear colleagues and friends,
I hope that you and your families are doing well and that you are safe and in perfect health. These are extraordinary and difficult times for the whole world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we are all going to get through this turmoil together by being sensible, united, and by observing the public health authorities’ requirements and recommendations with discipline and a sense of responsibility.
At the Real Property Institute of Canada (RPIC), our primary concern is above all else your health and well-being. This is why, and in light of the current situation, our Board of Directors has decided to postpone the 2020 Marine Infrastructure National Workshop to 2021.
A rich, high-calibre program has already been developed for our meeting, which was originally scheduled for April 2020, and I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the exceptional work of our organizing committee, associates, presenters, partners and sponsors. Our intention is to preserve the results of the work done and to take advantage of the one-year postponement to further enrich our programming and put on an even better workshop in 2021!
In the meantime, take care of yourself and your loved ones, keep in touch, and I hope to see you all safe and sound at our meeting in 2021!

Real Property Institute of Canada
May 4 to 6, 2021 in St. John’s, NL
The Real Property Institute of Canada (RPIC) is pleased to invite you to its fourth national workshop on marine infrastructure, which will be held in the city of St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador May 4-6, 2021.
Building on success of the last three Workshops, we will be heading eastward to immerse ourselves in the heart of Atlantic Canada and its spectacular maritime environment. This fourth edition of the Workshop will continue our discussions on marine infrastructure while learning more about the latest technical and environmental challenges, as well as the latest technological innovations. Decision-makers and science experts will also share their insights related to long-term planning, maritime priorities and needs, trends for tomorrow's marine infrastructure, and the key changes expected in logistics and marine environment.
Our goal is to provide you with a world-class program with a unique learning experience, and an environment that facilitates networking and creating business opportunities.
The Workshop program will include technical sessions and networking opportunities. The following topics will be addressed in the program:
- Theme 1: Port Planning and Operation
- Theme 2: Coastal and Harbour Engineering
- Theme 3: Navigation and Waterways
- Theme 4: Environment
- Theme 5: Equipment, Materials and Systems
As was the case at previous Workshops, we will continue the Awards and Recognition program which allows us to showcase individuals or groups who have distinguished themselves through their work and commitment to the marine infrastructure community.
We will also take full advantage of being in the port city of St. John’s by incorporating an interesting program of local visits to port and science facilities in your participation options.
We are very proud to welcome you to North America's easternmost city, whose deep maritime roots date back centuries. The organizing committee is very pleased to host this Workshop in St. John’s and we hope that you will be part of another successful RPIC Marine Infrastructure National Workshop.
Registration is now open.
Welcome to Newfoundland and Labrador!
