The COVID-19 pandemic still looms large, despite the staged, ongoing reopening of businesses, schools and other aspects of society in Canada. Concern for a second wave of this pandemic in the Fall is also an issue. With so many unknowns and in an attempt to minimize unnecessary exposure for all, Dr. Thistle has decided to cancel all in-person RRS Education Seminars until further notice.

Ultimately, the challenges of seating arrangements with appropriate distancing, mask-wearing requirements and food service issues would severely reduce the enjoyability of these events for all of us. Thank you for understanding and rest assured, live events will resume when it is prudent to do so.

This program has now been filmed and is currently in the final post-production stage. We are aiming to have the online version launched in late September, so all registrations will be transferred to this format. Further instructions will be provided as soon as possible.
