International Delegates

The World Religions Conference is pleased to welcomes delegates and attendees from throughout the world. 

Visa Requirements for Canada:

Depending on where you live, you will need to meet certain visitor entry requirements of Canada. Please refer to the Canadian Immigration and Citizenship website for details:

NOTE: Whereas the organizing committee of the World Religions Conference encourages and welcomes delegates from any and all parts of the world, it cannot assist in providing any intended delegates in obtaining a visitor visa to Canada. It is the complete responsibility of the delegate who wishes to attend the conference to make necessary arrangements to obtain a visitor visa to visit Canada, if it is required. Once the delegate has registered on this website to attend the conference, a confirmation email will be send to the person. This confirmation email will confirm the persons registeration and no further letter of confirmation or invitation is provided to delegates from any part of the world.

If you need to present a proof to the Canadian Embassy or Canadian Consulate in your country, you may take a copy of the confirmation email as proof of your registration to the Conference.
