SAFETY PROTOCOLS

We are mindful of the uncertainties around in-person conferences during a pandemic and the following outlines our approach to safety:

 

  • We will monitor the situation as it develops and will follow all protocols put in place by the Government of Alberta
  • The conference will be COVID-19-safe and compliant with government health requirements to ensure we protect the health and safety of all attendees. 
  • Signage will be placed throughout the venue to remind guests of how to prevent the spread of COVID-19, as per Alberta Health Services recommendations. 
  • We will be promoting behaviours such as physical distancing, mask usage, and limited handshaking.
  • All participants will be required to show proof of vaccination to attend the event.
