CCDC Update - April 2020

Posted on Mon Apr 6th, 2020

After careful consultation with our organizing committee regarding the health and safety of everyone in our industry – students, teachers, and sponsors, our volunteers, and supporters – we have made the difficult decision to cancel Canadian Cyber Defence Challenge (CCDC) 2020.

Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are disappointed that we are unable to hold this event – especially for students and supporters. We know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today.

Our organization will be reaching out directly to schools and sponsors with information about providing full refunds.


We thank everyone who participated in the planning and organizing for this year. We look forward to bringing you CCDC 2021 – with new challenges and a reimagined event that brings students and educators together in collaboration with the ICT industry as part of a showcase that recognizes the growing importance and significance of cyber security in our community.
