TRAVEL VISAS TO ENTER CANADA
Do you require a travel visa to enter Canada? Be sure to check with the Canadian Embassy or Consulate for your jurisdiction about visa processing times, and allow sufficient lead time for your application to be processed. If you will require a letter of invitation to accompany your visa application you should make a request well in advance of the conference to the Conference Administrator.

REQUIREMENT FOR ELECTRONIC TRAVEL AUTHORIZATION (eTA)
As of March 15, 2016, Canada has introduced a new entry requirement, known as an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), for certain international travellers who fly or transit through Canada. Entry requirements for other methods of travel (land, sea) will not change. Travellers who are not citizens of Canada or the United States will need an eTA before they board a flight to Canada. Details are available on the Government of Canada website http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/eta.asp
