Some conference attendees may need an eTA. Canada has introduced a new entry requirement, known as an eTA, for visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air. Exceptions include U.S. citizens, however U.S permanent residents will require the eTA.
Starting August 1, 2015, eligible travelers can apply online for an eTA. On March 15, 2016, this entry requirement will become mandatory and travelers will need an eTA before they can board a flight to Canada.
