Night at the COPA social night and awards program both put on hiatus

For the first time since its inception, the COPA Awards Program is being suspended due to the pandemic and social distancing restrictions. The 2020 COPA awards gala (Night at the COPA) has also been put off until next year. 

“The Awards Program is such an important part of COPA and the OP sector and we are sorry that we’ll have to skip it this year,” commented Sam Moncada, COPA’s president. “Unfortunately, it’s just not possible to give our honourees the kind of recognition they deserve due to this pandemic. But, we’ll be back next year and it will be better than ever!” 

All nominations that have been submitted this year will be moved to next year’s Awards Program. If you have any questions about the Awards Program, please send an email to
