Pri-Med UPDATES Fall 2021:
Live Event Vaccine Policy

This conference will be implementing a mandatory vaccination policy for our attendees, sponsors/exhibitors, suppliers, and staff.


We are committed to producing a safe conference for our attendees, sponsors/exhibitors, suppliers, and staff. We are carefully monitoring the vaccination rollout, government guidelines and public health regulations to ensure the conference will be a safe place to learn and interact.

As part of our commitment, we have developed safety protocols and best practices around COVID-19 response and prevention, and these are being updated as more information and guidance becomes available.

As an organization that produces leading medical conferences and events across Canada, Diversified Communications ULC is proud to serve as a central learning place for continuing medical education and recognizes its responsibility to provide our community with the safest and secure environment we can create

If you will not be fully vaccinated in time for this conference, we encourage you to instead consider attending one of our upcoming Pri-Med NOW virtual conferences.
