About the Conference

The ASQ Canada and Greenland Region is thrilled to present the 2021 ASQ Canada Quality Conference, fully virtual, bilingual, and interactive, on the 4th and 5th October 2021. It is being organised and proudly hosted by the ASQ Montreal Section.

This year the theme is “Risk and Resilience”. Our objective is to provide you knowledge and competencies that will lead to quantifying risk in a business sense and gain a better understanding on how to apply tools that help assess quantitative risks and turn them into opportunities to make your organisations more resilient.

We aim to provide a great event for quality practitioners to get together, share best practices, learn from each other, and help our industries and organisations be better prepared for what the future has in store for us. We will be offering networking sessions, conferences and break out rooms or workshops, as well as two keynote speakers. All this over 2 days, with two different streams of concurrent sessions each day. English and French language sessions with live interpreter services will be available in the other languages.

Certificates for ASQ recertification units (RU) will be delivered.
