COVID-19 and COM 2022

The Metallurgy and Materials Society of CIM is planning for a full in-person conference in Montreal, Quebec August 2022.​

Currently, all participants and speakers are expected to attend in person at the event.  We may stream virtually some on-demand (pre-recorded) presentations during or after the conference for a registration fee.  Should local health restrictions dictate our need to convert the conference to be 100% virtual, similar to COM 2020-2021, then these laws will be applied at that time.


Current Situation as of May 16, 2022:

  • In Quebec, the vaccination passport is no longer required to access a place or to do an activity, except for travel within and outside Canada, by train, plane, or cruise ship.
  • Masks or face coverings:  Although masks or face coverings are no longer mandatory in most public places (travel, hospital, transit still required), please read on recommendations 


In response to the COVID-19 crisis, our health protocols and standards are in accordance with the public health guidelines. The recommendations of public health authorities are constantly evolving, and we remain attentive to meet the highest standards in compliance with all levels of government.
