Colleagues,

 

Early registration is open until Tuesday, April 26 for the May Interim scheduled for May 23-27, 2016 at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, BC, Canada and hosted by the Ethernet Alliance. I strongly recommend registering this week to avoid any last-minute scrambling before the Tuesday deadline.

 

  • Rooms are still available at the Fairmont for the group rate, but the hotel is filling quickly - you may not be able to find one room type for your entire stay
  • Whistler Shuttle has offered a group discount on bus or van service from the Vancouver airport (YVR) to the Fairmont, but you must book in advance; the trip is about 2 1/2 hours with traffic

 

Please see the meeting home page for more information about ground transportation options, links to the hotel group reservation page, the meeting schedule, and a link to contact the meeting planner if you have questions: 

 

New eTA requirement for non-U.S. visa-exempt citizens

Citizenship and Immigration Canada has informed us of a new regulation affecting visitors to Canada: Starting March 15, 2016, visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to or transit through Canada will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Exceptions include U.S. citizens and foreign nationals with a valid visa.

 

To apply for an eTA you must have a valid passport, a credit card, and email address. The cost is $7 CAD and your eTA will be valid for up to five years. You do NOT need an invitation letter or any documentation from the meeting planner. Please apply here: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/eta-start.asp

 

I look forward to seeing you in Whistler!

 

Regards,

 

Steve
