Our Commitment to Health & Safety
An Update to Our Community
Effective April 8, 2022, the Province of BC, including the Vancouver Convention Centre, will no longer require proof of vaccination at events such as CHFA NOW Vancouver.
Our commitment to hosting a safe and healthy show for all participants has not changed, and we continue to look for opportunities to ensure our event is safe, healthy, and enjoyable for all.
No, effective April 8, 2022, the province of BC has lifted all proof of vaccination requirements.
No, masks are not required at the show, however, we ask that you consider the comfort and health of others. Members of our community may be immuno-compromised, a caretaker or uncomfortable not wearing a mask at larger events. We encourage you to continue wearing a mask when social distancing is not possible.
No, at this time, there are no capacity limits in place. However, we encourage everyone to maintain a safe social distance where possible.
Depending on your travel destination, you may be required to get a COVID-19 PCR test or other eligible tests (check with your airline for testing requirements). See below for resources and testing locations.

Richmond, near the YVR Airport:
*Same-day testing is available at the airport before your departure, but it must be booked ahead of time. While booking, make sure to factor in extra time for testing and travel time to your departure gate. It takes approximately 45 minutes to conduct the test and get the results before you can proceed to your departure gate. You must check-in FIRST before proceeding to the testing site at the airport.
We are excited to get back to our live events and feel more confident than ever that the show will go on! Despite lifting restrictions, we continue to monitor the situation closely to ensure a safe and healthy show. If the show is cancelled due to COVID, we will work with members to re-assign deposits to CHFA NOW Toronto, 2023 membership dues or issue a full refund.
