Greetings Real Property Community,

The summer is officially underway and that means the Real Property Institute of Canada (RPIC) is ramping up to bring you some innovative and insightful professional development events this fall! Registration for many of our upcoming events are open, and I invite you to mark your calendars and join us at any number of these offerings.

2022 Virtual Forum on the Workplace — The Flexible Workplace: Equip. Embrace. Excel.
Weren’t able to join us at the first instalment of RPIC’s 2022 Virtual Forum on the Workplace in June? Not a problem! There is still time to register for the next two sessions taking place in September and December.

September 14 — Embrace
Building on our first session which equipped you for the hybrid workplace, in this session we will open our minds to the opportunities offered by the hybrid workplace. Get the knowledge and tools from our industry leaders that will help you experiment in building a meaningful, welcoming workplace that employees can embrace.

December 7 — Excel
The future is calling —The Future of the workplace that is! Join us for a reflection on the challenges, experiments, and successes of past workplace strategies, and look forward to the creation of hybrid workplaces that allow workers to excel.

Registration for these two sessions is open!

2022 Virtual Federal Contaminated Sites Workshop

2022 Hybrid Real Property National Workshop
Registration is now open for the 2022 Real Property National Workshop, a hybrid live and online event taking place November 30 to December 1. This is the first time that RPIC has been able to invite the real property community to gather in person since before the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are excited to welcome you! Participants will join us live at the Shaw Centre in downtown Ottawa or from the comfort of their homes/workspaces.

The theme of the Workshop is: Ready for tomorrow? Attendees will be able to engage in discussions, listen to speakers, participate in activities, and expand their networks. Whether you attend in-person or online, the 2022 Real Property National Workshop will deliver an excellent selection of keynote speakers, panel sessions, and concurrent breakout sessions on a wide array of timely and relevant real property topics.

Register now!

At RPIC, it is our mission to connect and enrich the real property community through opportunities for learning and professional development. We can’t wait to welcome you at our upcoming events where we will make time for learning and growth, together!

Best wishes,

Jean-François Robert
