It is the sole responsibility of the participant to check and confirm current visa requirements to visit Canada. The Canadian Government requires a travel visa for citizens from certain countries:
Participants who require an entry visa must allow sufficient time for the application procedure. Participants should also contact the nearest embassy or consulate to determine the appropriate application procedures and timing of their visa applications. You should check with your country’s embassy on any travel related restrictions or advisories that may be in place.
If you require an official letter of invitation, please contact us as soon as possible. Please note that we are only able to provide you with an official letter of invitation if: (a) you have received confirmation from us that your presentation has been accepted to the conference; or (b) we have received your conference registration and payment has been confirmed.
Non-residents of Canada are not covered for public health care for any part of their stay in the country. It is important that you arrange to be covered by your own private health insurance from the moment you arrive in Canada until the moment you leave. Medical costs can be very expensive in Canada (up to several thousand dollars a day).
