1. How will the conference be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic?
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in border closures, restrictions on travel, and a ban on large gatherings. Instead of holding an in-person the conference in Toronto as planned, we are now offering the Canadian Animal Law Conference online!
Although we are disappointed to miss seeing speakers and attendees in person, we are excited to explore the possibilities offered by an online program, like increased international content and participation now that participants are freed from the constraints imposed by physical travel.
2. How will the online conference work?
We are using an online conferencing platform that will provide a high quality experience for speakers and attendees, with multiple opportunities for learning and engagement. Conference presentations will be available live to registrants, and available afterward for those who wish to watch later or cannot join live because of time zone challenges.
3. I'm a speaker. Do I still have to register?
Yes. All attendees must register, including speakers and moderators. Registration will open in late June, 2020, and will be offered at a rate reflective of the online program. To stay up-to-date on conference registration, please join the Animal Justice mailing list.
4. Can I bring my dog to the conference?
Sure! Now that all attendees be joining the conference remotely, dogs, cats, and other companion animals are welcome to join you—bonus points if they make an appearance on-screen!
5. Can I sponsor the conference?
Yes! For information about sponsorship opportunities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
