Health & Safety at ICPE 2023
ISPE shares with all ICPE 2023 meeting attendees, speakers, exhibitors, staff, and vendors a commitment to and responsibility for a safe and healthy environment for all conference participants. 

The situation in Canada as of June 2023: General COVID-19 restrictions no longer apply. You are not required to be vaccinated and do not need to be tested on arrival. Masking in public places is not required. Masks are not required for air travel. Businesses and private cultural institutions are allowed to make their own requirements regarding face masks, shields, COVID-19 vaccination, etc. You are required to comply with such requirements if you wish for service or access. 

Safety and preventative measures implemented by ISPE at ICPE venues will take into consideration guidance from Canadian public health authorities at the time of the conference. However, as we implement these measures, please be aware that ISPE cannot fully eliminate all risk of harm to conference participants or guarantee safety, including those posed by COVID-19 or its variant strains. Ultimately, as an ICPE 2023 participant, you are responsible for your own safety.

Please also recognize that events may arise that necessitate changes to these ISPE safety protocols. We will update you as needed via the ISPE website, emails, and other communication channels. Thank you for your understanding.
