Citizens of some countries may need a visa to enter Canada, and visa-exempt foreign nationals need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to Canada. (U.S. citizens and travelers with a valid Canadian visa are exempt from this requirement.) If you need a visa, please register early. You may need the confirmation letter of acceptance to the conference for a visa application. The Immigration Canada website has more information.
