Communicate, Collaborate, Celebrate with Accessibility Standards Canada

Important notice

We have heard the concerns of some stakeholders regarding the use of scents at the event venue. Please note that the hotel has agreed to stop using scents three days prior to and during the event. As we wish to ensure that this is an inclusive and scent-free event, we also ask that all participants refrain from wearing scented products.

Should you have any other concerns or suggestions, please contact us by e-mail. We want to work with you to ensure that this event, and all future ones, are accessible for everybody.
