13th International Conference on the Chemistry and Biology of Mineralized Tissues

Montebello, Quebec, Canada

Shuttles / Travel Visa / eTA Information

Sunday October 20, 2019 is arrival day, with a Welcome Reception to be held at 7:30 p.m. The meeting itself starts the next morning, Monday October 21st.


There will be complimentary shuttle buses available on Arrival Day (October 20th), at Montreal's Pierre Elliot Trudeau Airport to take participants to the conference site in Montebello, about 1.5 hours outside Montreal. Departure-day shuttle buses will be available on Friday October 25, 2019 to take you back to the airport in Montreal.


Note: Complimentary buses will be staggered throughout the day, and their departures will be based upon arrival times.  We will do our best to accommodate everyone’s travel plans. However, if this is not possible, upon request, we will also provide information and help arrange a car/taxi service at a discounted rate to you, but note that this is really quite an expensive option that you will have to pay for.

Shuttle bus times have now been sent directly by email to the registrants. 
If you have any questions,
please contact our administrator, Cathy Ferrie.
