International attendees

Congress attracts a considerable number of attendees and guest speakers from around the world. International attendees should confirm whether a visa is required for entry to Canada.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada provides a list of countries for which visa restrictions apply, as well as all other pertinent information you may require before making any travel plans. Give yourself plenty of time as the entire application process can take several months.

Please note that the registration confirmation you receive from us does not represent an invitation to attend the Congress for visa purposes. If you have been invited by one of the participating associations, please contact it directly to obtain an official letter. The Federation is unable to send letters of confirmation of any kind other than the Congress registration confirmation automatically generated and sent, by email, once your payment has been processed.
