The ASM will be held at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre, located in downtown Vancouver.


TFRI will provide a travel allowance for invited speakers and selected trainees only.

All other conference participants are required to cover their own travel costs.

Invited Speakers

The Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI) will cover round-trip travel costs from your 'home base' to Vancouver, and return. This is in accordance with the TFRI Policy regarding travel and expenses. Please make your own travel arrangements to Vancouver using Economy, Tango or Flex Fares.


TFRI will provide travel awards to a selection of trainees to help with the costs of attending the ASM. The number of awards will be based on the quality of submitted abstracts and not all accepted trainees will receive travel awards. Travel awards are not guaranteed to cover the full costs of travel. Payment of the awards will be made after the ASM.
