POLICY ON HOLDING THE EVENT IN THE TIME OF THE PANDEMIC ASSOCIATED WITH COVID-19 AND ITS VARIANTS
We remind you that the current situation requires the implementation of certain public health rules, and that it is everyone’s responsibility to comply with these standards in effect.
The event organizer as well as the operator of the place/location hosting the event are committed to enforcing the health directives issued by government authorities that are applicable to them in order to maintain a safe environment for all participants.
By proceeding with their registration, the participant also agrees to comply with the health directives issued by government authorities that are applicable to them and to ensure that their dependents comply with them, if applicable.
Failure to comply with these public health and safety orders could lead to the expulsion of the participant from the premises, without any possibility of compensation.
Depending on the case, failure to comply with these public safety orders could also incur your liability according to the application of the penalties stipulated in the Public Health Act.
Use of the vaccine passport
In accordance with the orders of the government of Québec currently in effect, a vaccine passport may be required to participate in this event in its in-person format.
If applicable, the event organizer and the operator of the premises hosting the in-person event will be required to conduct any necessary verification in connection with a participant’s vaccination status in accordance with the government orders in effect.
By proceeding with their registration and depending on the chosen participation format (virtual vs. in-person), the participant confirms that they hold the vaccination status required to participate in the in-person event.
The participant understands that it is the government of Québec that is imposing any vaccination requirement that might be necessary to participate in an in-person event. The participant understands that the event organizer and the operator of the premises covered by the vaccine passport cannot be held liable for imposing this requirement.
The vaccination status verification will be carried out at the main entrance of the event in accordance with the orders implemented by the government of Québec at the time of the event, if applicable.
Under no circumstances can the organizer be required to reimburse a participant who is denied access to the organized event due to non-compliant vaccination coverage.
Holding the event in 100%-virtual mode
Public health rules can change in unpredictable, unavoidable ways beyond the control of the event organizer.
In light of this fact, the event will be held in a format suited to the present health situation.
If you opted to participate in the in-person event and it cannot take place due to a Public Health order or a precarious epidemiological situation, therefore, you will be able to receive a 50% refund and you will automatically be transferred to the virtual event.
Otherwise, the GENERAL CANCELLATION POLICY specific to your participation mode is still applicable to you.
Cancellation policy in the event of death or serious illness
In the event of the death or serious illness of the participant or a member of their immediate family (father, mother, spouse, child), a 20% refund of the amount paid will be made upon receipt of written proof. A death notification or medical certificate will be considered proof beyond any doubt. No other document will be accepted.
No registration transfers will be accepted unless they are in line with the application of the above POLICY ON HOLDING THE EVENT IN THE TIME OF THE PANDEMIC ASSOCIATED WITH COVID-19 AND ITS VARIANTS.
