International Delegates

International delegates wishing to attend the Canadian Respiratory Conference (CRC) are responsible for making their own travel and accommodation arrangements, for obtaining visas and for covering costs such as registration fees and incidentals. The CRC does not provide letters of invitation. To assist with securing travel visas, the CRC will provide receipts, as confirmation of registration, upon payment of fees. International delegates wishing to attend the conference must register online and pay by credit card.

The Government of Canada has a new entry requirement for individuals travelling to or through Canada who are not Canadian or American citizens or permanent residents of Canada. You may require an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA). For more information, consult to determine if this requirement applies to you.
