DUTY OF CARE Commitment

The Canadian Society of Immunology (CSI) is requiring all CSI Conference attendees [planners, partners, onsite AV technicians and speakers] be fully vaccinated prior to attending the conference.

We will request proof [check with your province for vaccine documentation] of vaccination during the onsite registration process. We are an inclusive organization and would like you to join the conference in-person, however, if you are not vaccinated, we will have a limited virtual offering available online.

CSI is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our Annual Conference participants and those supporting our conference. We are working closely with all vendors asking them to adhere to the same protocols as our attendees. While CSI cannot guarantee conference attendees will not become infected with COVID-19, CSI has adopted preventative measures to reduce the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus at our Annual Conference in accordance with COVID-19 guidance provided by:

Government policy on proof of vaccination and masking:
