Registration Fees

The safety of our community comes first. With a fourth wave of COVID-19 underway The Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering has made the difficult decision to turn CCEC 2021 into a virtual conference.

The registration fees for the conference have been decreased. Anyone who has paid the full registration fee for the in-person conference will be reimbursed for the difference in early October.

If you are not interested in taking part in the virtual conference but have fully registered for the conference, please contact CIC for a reimbursement before Oct. 1, 2021.

Become a member of the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (CSChE) or one of the other constituent societies (i.e., the CSC and CSCT) of the Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC) to receive a substantial discount on conference registration fees. Undergraduate students and graduate students at a Canadian university will automatically receive a complimentary CSChE membership. Your membership helps the society support the Canadian chemical engineering community with programming and initiatives throughout the year.

For budget purposes, registration fees are in CAD, applicable taxes not yet included.

Conduct Guidelines

Canadian Chemical Engineering Conference Attendee, Volunteer, and Staff Conduct Guidelines

The Canadian Chemical Engineering Conference (CCEC) is Canada’s national premier chemical engineering conference hosted annually by the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (CSChE). The CSChE is committed to providing a safe, productive and welcoming environment for all participants. The conference provides an excellent opportunity for members and meeting attendees to connect, learn and expand and grow their careers.

At all times, meeting attendees, volunteers and staff should act in accordance with the CIC Code of Ethics, dedicating themselves to the highest standards of personal honour and professional integrity, extending fairness and loyalty to associates, employers, subordinates and employees, and accepting and defending the primacy of public well-being. This applies to all meeting-related events, including those sponsored by other organizations held in conjunction with CSChE and CIC events, in public or private facilities.

We all play a role in fostering a positive environment of trust, respect, open communication and ethical behaviour.

  1. Being respectful of all individuals involved in the meeting including attendees, volunteers, management, coordinative, and other contracted roles.
  2. Being respectful of rules and policies of the meeting venue and other contracted or event-related facilities.

    1. professional, considerate, and collaborative;

    3. respectful of each other in conversation, during oral and poster presentations, and during group and social events.
  4. Accepting that disruptive, harassing, or other inappropriate statements or behaviour toward an individual is unacceptable.
  5. Being mindful of your surroundings at all times.
  6. Observing and reporting dangerous situations or of someone in distress, e.g. calling 911, notifying event security.
  7. Not engaging in unacceptable behaviour*.

Examples of unacceptable behavior:

  • Disruption or obstruction of any meeting activity or at any affiliated group and social events;
  • Physical or verbal harassment, including sexual harassment, bullying, discrimination in any form, or abuse of any attendee;
