The DOHaD 2022 Organising Committee plans to hold a full in -person congress in Vancouver this coming August 2022. As Canada begins to open its borders, visitors to Canada are currently required to show a pre-entry molecular COVD test, proof of full vaccination with a vaccine approved by Health Canada, and use the ArriveCAN app. Travel within Canada (by rail, air, and ship) also requires full vaccination.
Up-to-date information on entry requirements can be found here:, and we encourage you to check this site as you plan your travels to Vancouver.
