Message from the Registrar

Dear CCM members,

We find ourselves in the middle of a global pandemic. Many of us are directly involved in the laboratory response to the novel coronavirus, but all of us are affected by the national and international response.

The AMMI-CACMID meeting scheduled to take place in Vancouver in late April  has been cancelled. The CCM AGM, normally held in conjunction with AMMI-CACMID, has been postponed until a later date.

CCM bylaws state that we must hold an annual meeting of the membership (5.1.1).  We cannot hold an entirely electronic meeting (5.7.2).

The Board will look for the next available opportunity for us to hold an AGM. However, at this time we cannot say when this will be. Meeting restrictions may remain in effect for several months.

All members will be notified when it is possible to set a date and location for the AGM.

The Canadian College of Microbiologists (CCM) is a professional association for Microbiologists across Canada. The College was incorporated in 1978 under the Canada Corporations Act and has a mandate to:

  • gain recognition of microbiology as a distinctive scientific profession and to provide an association through which professional microbiologists may develop programs and activities to promote their professional development and status;
  • provide a designation, by which they are recognized to work with microorganisms with competence, dependability and safety;
  • and operate with legal and professional status as a non-profit organization.


For general correspondence with the College please contact the Registrar.
