    I think developing our own process also comes with a cost. I am sure that we can work something out.

    4.J Chess Foundation of Canada
    After a rough start to 2020 the Foundation assets have climbed back above the value at this time last year.
    As of this moment we have $370,000 invested and expect to generate around $12,500 of income for the CFC this fiscal year.
    I had the pleasure of hearing from Kalev Pugi's son who expressed his gratitude that we have continued to honour his father's
    legacy through the Kalev Pugi portion of the Foundation that generates grants to promising Canadian juniors.

    2020 National Youth Active Online Chess Championship, a qualifying tournament to FIDE Online World Cadets and Youths Championship
    On Nov 8, 2020, the first National Youth tournament was organized by Juniors to Master Chess Academy Inc. There were a total of 147 Players. In other to prevent cheating, players were required to provide dual cameras and joined thru the zoom during the whole event. Cameras were set up to ensure the satisfaction of the Fair Play playing environment. One camera was for the front view that allowed the organizer and the Team to clearly see the face of the player. The other camera was for the side view, which would let the organizer saw the table, the side of the player, and partial of the screen.

    During the event, there was a team of members who watched all players on Zoom looking for any suspicious behaviors. Also, the Fair Play Team was busy checking games. It was a very intense tournament for players and at the same time, it was also very intensive for all of us working at the background to ensure it was a fairness online tournament.

    I could like to congratulate everyone who worked on the event, specially thanks to the Chief Organizer, Victoria Jung-Doknjas; the Chief Arbiter Jacob Mayer; Deputy Arbiter Brendan Woodroff; Arbiter IM Alexandru David; French Arbiter WGM Maïli-Jade Ouellet, who translated in French from the Opening Ceremony and throughout the 6 Rounds of announcements; JtM Fair Play Team Members and TDs: GM Gergely Szabo, FM John Doknjas, FM Joshua Doknjas, who worked real-time during and after the event to ensure fair play and the Appeals Team: Christina Tao and Vlad Drkulec.

    Congratulations again Christina, Victoria and Gergely! Good luck to all Canadian players in the final stage of the World Online C&Y Ch.!

    I am pleased to share good news that many 2000-2003 cohort players and their parents were hoping for.

    Since the 2020 over-the-board editions of these two popular competitions didn't take place due to the COViD-19 pandemic, the FIDE Council decided to extend the age limit, exceptionally, for the 2021 FIDE World Youth U-18 Ch. and the 2021 FIDE World Junior U-20 Ch.

    All players who have not reached *age 19* and *age 21*, respectively, will have the right to participate - for the 2021 events only. Additional modifications are made regarding personal right players (for instance, "To add Continental U18 Champions if there was not any Continental Junior Championship").

    Does this mean that FIDE is hoping to have an in person World Youth event in 2021 or is this to be an online event?

    All World Calendar events for 2021 are scheduled as over-the-board, with the earliest one to start in March. Obviously, if time comes to send invitations / to open registrations but the epidemiological situation and/or national regulations in host countries remain not conducive to mass sports events, the organizers would ask FIDE for changes.
