Travel requirements of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada
It is recommended that all international attendees review the requirements of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada related to flying to or transiting through Canada. For more information, please visit this page.
As of November 10, 2016, visa-exempt foreign nationals are expected to have an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to or transit through Canada. Exceptions include U.S. citizens, and travelers with a valid Canadian visa. Canadian citizens, including dual citizens, and Canadian permanent residents are not eligible to apply for an eTA.
International Invitation Letters
Upon request, PDAC issues International Invitation Letters to international attendees wishing to attend the convention.
PDAC cannot accept any responsibility for Visa applications nor will it influence the processing of Visas. Please note that it may take Canadian Embassies/Consulates three (3) months to process a Visa application. Applicants must check with their respective authorities to determine exact processing requirements. For more information about Canadian government requirements for visitors and contact information for Visa offices, visit www.cic.gc.ca.
Where an attendee is unable to attend the convention because of their failure to obtain a Visa, the cancellation policy for registration fees will apply.
