CSMMI Cancels the Monthly Shows for Spring 2021

The CSMMI announced today that it has cancelled the monthly shows and meetings that would have normally been scheduled for January, February, March and April 2021.  The recent increases in COVID-19 cases in Halton Region and around the Greater Toronto area has prompted the Province of Ontario to increase controls and implement lockdown measures to stem community transmission of the virus.  These measures limit the number of people that can gather indoors.   The City of Burlington has extended its closure of the Burlington Seniors Centre to public events.

The annual 2-day show usually held in June is also under review due to the current restrictions imposed by the Province and City .  At this time, we do not intend to hold this event in June, but we are looking at options to hold some kind of show later in 2021.  The approval and roll out of a vaccine has given hope that we will be able to get together again sometime in 2021.  Please check this website for regular updates.  Thank you for your understanding.  Keep well.  Keep safe.
