The health, safety and well-being of all those participating in and attending PDAC Convention is the top priority for hosting a successful event. The pathway to achieving this is to adhere to all Canadian and local government laws, implement appropriate health and safety measures in consultation with healthcare authorities and experts, and apply best practices as required at the date of the in person event. We understand that these requirements may evolve, and will ensure all attendees are kept informed of any new developments.


1.   Daily self-screening for symptoms is RECOMMENDED

  • Participants are encouraged to self-screen daily (review the list of symptoms here)
  • If you have any symptoms (even if mild), it is recommended that you stay home (self-isolate) while you are sick
