Covid-19 Policy:

FRS wants to ensure the health and safety of every person at the Congress; therefore all public health and safety measures will be followed and strictly enforced. Since there is no way to predict the status of the Covid-19 pandemic at the time of the Congress, FRS must post the following based on available data as of the opening date of registration January 10, 2022. 
  • Congress attendees agree to adhere to all public health policies set forth by the city of Montreal, the province of Quebec, and regulations of the Sheraton Le Centre, or McGill University (if the workshop you are attending is held on campus)
  • Safety measures may include specific social distancing and wearing masks indoors, or other safety measures as required
  • FRS recommends wearing masks indoors for all persons regardless of vaccine status
  • Proof of vaccination may be required
  • The Province of Quebec requires PROOF of vaccination to enter most public spaces, and this is unlikely to change by September 2022 and includes
  • It is unlikely you will be able to enter Canada without being fully vaccinated
    • It is equally unlikely you will be able to attend the Congress due to restrictions in place from the Province of Quebec
    • The Sheraton will be enforcing regulations on their property
  • PLEASE check https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid BEFORE booking travel

Covid Social Distancing Capacity Impacts:

  • If we are forced to reduce the number of available spots for workshops (or the dinner cruise) due to social distancing requirements set by the hotel, cruise ship, locality, or country, we will:
    • Determine the allowable (reduced) capacity for the event
    • Review event registrations in chronological order. 
    • Any registrations that came in after the revised cap was met will be given the following options:
      • A full refund for the event
      • Option to transfer to a different event that still has availability (in the case of workshops)
