In order to visit Canada, you must have a valid passport, while citizens of certain countries and territories need a visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA). To find out if you need a visa or an ETA, visit the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website. Depending on your citizenship, you should allow approximately between 30 to 85 days for a visa delivery. Participants who need an official letter of invitation in order to obtain a visa will be able to request it through the abstract submission page. It is important to note that the letter does not constitute any financial commitment on behalf of the Organizing Committee or CALACS.

Travel Funding

All participants are strongly encouraged to apply to their home and other institutions (e.g. government) for travel funds as early as possible.

Since it is expected that travel funding to attend the Conference will be very limited, only registered graduate students presenting papers at the Conference may apply. Participants are more likely to be offered partial rather than full funding to participate.

Before completing the form, applicants that wish to apply for such funding should be ready to include a budget for their airfare and accommodation costs (these are the only costs that will be covered or partially covered).

The deadline to apply for travel funding is November 15, 2020.
