Conference Modification or Cancellation by BCRPA

If circumstances change due to Public Health Orders related to the pandemic and we are unable to gather together in-person for Symposium, the conference will move to a virtual event. In this circumstance, all registered Delegates will be given the option of attending virtually and will receive a partial refund for the price difference, or will be able to cancel their registration for a full refund.

Please note, attendees are responsible for canceling their own hotel and travel reservations.

Health Safety Precautions

Please note that health safety precautions will be in place at the facility and during the conference. BCRPA recommends delegates wear masks, although it is not required. The hotel and conference centre has successfully hosted many events without COVID-19 exposure.

Details on BC’s Provincial Health Orders are available here:

Event Photography

Photographs of Symposium may be produced and may include your recognizable image. By participating in the conference, you therefore consent to being photographed and you authorize BCRPA to use any of these recordings for its activities and events, as well as for its print and electronic promotional material, including on the Internet via the BCRPA website or other social media websites. If you have any questions, please contact the BCRPA.

Unauthorized recording (audio, video, still photography, etc.) of presentations at any BCRPA event by a presenter or the audience including sessions, plenaries, keynotes, etc., without the express written consent of the Chair of the event or designated BCRPA staff is strictly prohibited.

Any authorized recording must be disclosed to the Delegates in attendance in that session, prior to the commencement of the presentation and only record the presenter, not the audience. Further, any authorized recordings may not be used for commercial purposes or posted on any open public media source. Conduct that violates this policy may be subject to sanctions pursuant to BCRPA’s disciplinary policies.
