Visa & eTA Information
We recognize that the vast majority of our delegates will participate virtually. However, for those attending our Satellite meetings (October 11, 2021) it is important to outline Canada’s Visa and eTA regulations.
Effective November 14, 2016, the Government of Canada has introduced a new entry requirement, known as an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), that applies to visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to or transiting Canada by air.
Effective November 10, 2016, visa-exempt foreign nationals must have an eTA before they can board a flight to Canada.
To complete your application for an eTA, you will need your passport, a credit card, and an email address. An eTA costs $7 CAD and is valid for up to five years.
Among those exempted from this new requirement are U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid visa. Entry requirements for travellers arriving by land or sea have not changed.
To see if the citizens of your country need an eTA or to apply for one, visit the Government of Canada’s website.
