The Conservative Party of Canada announced that the party convention will take place virtually in the spring of 2021. In an email to members, CPC President Scott Lamb shared the news that the convention will take place on March 18 to 20, 2021. This date is earlier than what was initially expected.

"By holding it a bit earlier, it also ensures we’re able to gather your feedback and build that into a platform for the next election. In a minority Parliament, that election could come at any time, so having this in March means we have that opportunity to hear from you before the platform is finalized," said Lamb.

Party conventions are a nexus for party activities and initiatives. National Council, Electoral District Associations and devoted partisans, all gather together to work on the future of their party. Constitutional amendments, as well as policy proposals are very common for conventions. There are also a number of guest speakers expected.

President Lamb continued, "Obviously, the uncertainty around COVID-19 is what first caused us to shift our convention, and what caused us to hold the Leadership event virtually as well. That uncertainty remains, and that makes it difficult to plan something to the scale of our in-person conventions where thousands of people come together under one roof."

This is the first time the CPC has ever held a convention virtually.

"We’re looking forward to having an in-person convention again in the future, and National Council decided the next convention in 2023 will take place in Quebec City," Lamb concluded.
