Call for Presentations
Submission Deadline has been extended to: May 15, 2019 

The 2019 RPIC Real Property National Workshop (RPNW) theme is Hidden Opportunities: Beyond the Bricks.

This year, the RPNW will allow delegates to explore the hidden opportunities that can be found in all aspects of real property – from the built environment to the people who fill the workplace, from the internal workings of a single facility to the inherent complexities of a national program of work.

Delegates will be given the opportunity to learn about transformational, innovative and cross-jurisdictional initiatives, as well as policy and program developments, from thought leaders and subject matter experts from both public and private sectors across North America. The Workshop will provide the building blocks to develop deeper insights on all facets of real property, methods to uncover new opportunities, and the best ways in which to capitalize on them.

The Real Property Institute of Canada (RPIC) and the RPNW Planning Committee invites you to submit presentations in, but not limited to, the following topics. Presentations that relate to Government of Canada priorities, such as Indigenous dimensions and the environment, are encouraged across all topic categories.
  • Opportunities in the Workplace
  • Opportunities in Project Management
  • Opportunities in Sustainability and Resiliency
  • Opportunities in Program Delivery
  • Opportunities in Procurement
  • Opportunities in Innovation and Technology
