Health & Safety

Your Safety and Wellbeing

To attend this year's Canadian Region Meeting, you must provide proof of vaccination or a negative test within three days of the start of the Meeting when you pick up your badge at the AUTM registration desk.

In the vein of transferring technology, not viruses, AUTM is putting into place protocols to keep you and your colleagues as safe as possible at the Canadian Region Meeting.

  • Masks are required indoors at the Meeting, unless you’re actively eating or drinking. Hotel staff are also required to wear masks and undergo regular testing.
  • Attendees will be asked to practice social distancing when selecting seats at sessions.
  • AUTM will be instituting a system of colored badge stickers that allow you to signal to others whether you want to be in close contact or remain 6 feet apart (Red…let’s keep our distance. Yellow….elbow bumps are cool. And Green…go ahead, give me a hug).

The situation is, of course, ever-changing and AUTM is monitoring the local and national environment daily. We hope the combination of the local protocols in Montreal and our enhanced safety provisions will make it a comfortable environment for everyone who attends.

Test Before You Leave Home: For your own peace of mind, consider taking a COVID test before you depart for Montreal.

AUTM is working to keep everyone safe and allow a much needed Meeting to support the success of you and other tech transfer professionals.
