Canadian and U.S. Visas
We highly encourage all attendees to acquire both Canadian and U.S. visas for a full experience of Niagara Falls, if applicable. Niagara Falls is located at the border of Canada and U.S., and the views from the Canada side and the U.S. side are distinctively unique. Experiencing the views from both sides will give a more memorable experience of Niagara Falls.

Banquet Venue: Old Fort Niagara
The conference banquet will be held at Old Fort Niagara, starting with a tour of the site. Old Fort Niagara is a fortification originally built by the French during the colonial period. It was a frequent battleground among the French, Native Americans, the British, and the Americans. Until the 20th century, it was used for various military purposes such as camps and headquarters. It is now restored back to its original form and serves as Fort Niagara State park and museum. It is one of the first sites designated as a National Historic Landmark by the United States government. The tour of the site will include musket and artillery firing demonstrations.
