International Attendees

The CEA is pleased to welcome international attendees to the conference each year. We understand that the process of acquiring a "Letter of Invitation" for visa purposes is a time sensitive issue. We will endeavor to prepare letters as soon as possible however we must follow the Immigration Canada guidelines as outlined on the websites below.

The evaluation of papers begins in mid-February and the last day for notifying paper submitters (authors) on the acceptance or rejection of their paper for presentation is March 31st. As soon as a paper has been reviewed and accepted for presentation an electronic acceptance letter will be emailed to the submitting author. Once this email is received, the author must send a request for a letter of invitation to

Please note that only one letter per submission will be issued, for the lead (submitting) author of the paper. If a co-author will present instead of the lead author then the paper must be revised in order to reflect that the co-author will now be the lead author. This can only be done by the CEA organizers. If this is required please email Paula Emery at Each registered conference participant can only present one paper.

The approximate timeline for sending out letters of invitations is between mid-February and March 31st. Please ensure your email address, your mailing address and full name are current and correct in your CEA account. We cannot issue invitation letters if information is incomplete. If there are any concerns with your profile, please contact Paula Emery at
