Please click here to check if you require a visa for Canada. Please note that this link is provided as a reference and it is not necessary for you to apply for the visa via their website. 

You can request support for your Visa application within the registration portal. Select the Visa application support letter and submit the required details. You will then receive a covering letter confirming your attendance at SMBE 2020.

Child care

Child care facility will be provided on-site for SMBE 2020 delegates. During the registration process please advise whether you would like to make use of the facility and add details on the age of your child. Further details will be shared on the facility nearer the time.

Carer Travel Awards

Attendees can apply for Carer Awards as part of conference registration rather than abstract submission, or by email to smbe.contact@gmail.com if an earlier response is needed. SMBE will make available up to $2000 to SMBE members with children or dependent adults (including adult children with a disability or elderly relatives) to spend as they wish to facilitate the member’s attendance at the annual SMBE meeting. Examples of eligible expenses include (but are not limited to) providing airfare for your child or for your caregiver to accompany you, flying a relative out to help with care at your home while you’re at the meeting, or extra help paying for on-site daycare.

All other awards can be applied for during the Abstract submission portal, further details can be found here.

Climate Issues and the SMBE

The local organizing committee of the 2020 SMBE meeting in Québec City, supported by the council of the Society, has clear goals for the upcoming meeting regarding sustainability : to offset the carbon cost of travel to the meeting and to take specific actions to lower the overall environmental footprint of the meeting. We are unanimously enthusiastic about taking action now. Click here for more information.
