Health and Safety

We are very excited to see many of you in person again in Montréal! Just like last year, we are committed to the health and safety of our members, exhibitors, and partners. We want to ensure our event is as safe as possible to protect you and your families, all APSA attendees and staff, and our communities. We will continue to update this page with more information as the event gets closer. Please check back often for updates.  

For COVID-19 travel requirements to enter Canada, please visit the Government of Canada’s Travel page for the latest information. Additional, abbreviated information is also available on our  “Travel to Canada” page.

Canada Entry Requirements

Currently, Canada requires travelers to be fully vaccinated to enter the country, and a pre-entry test is required. You can learn more about this on the Government of Canada’s travel page. You must be fully vaccinated in order to attend the meeting.

The current local sanitary rules require that everyone wear a mask or face covering when indoors in public spaces, in taxis, limos and public transportation and whenever a one metre (3 feet) distance cannot be maintained. Meeting attendees must wear medical masks. 

For events with more than 250 people,  medical masks can only be removed when eating or drinking. 

  • Touchless Badge Printing: Bring your QR code on your device and scan it for a no-touch experience. All attendees must wear their badges in all meeting spaces to confirm they are an attendee, as well as to verify they are fully vaccinated.
  • Mobile App and Digital Program in lieu of a printed program to reduce touchpoints. Digital programs will be available on iPads in the Registration area, APSA Lounge, and the Westin Information Desk.
  • Hand Sanitizer stations will be available around the event. We recommend frequent hand-washing.

Upon registering for the event, you agree to comply with health and safety protocols for the event. Please read the Waiver of Liability.
