MWC 2020 Reimbursement 


Dear Participants,

Following last Friday’s announcement of the cancellation of the Montreal Wood Convention, please find below the details concerning your refund:

    NB The Montreal Wood Convention Organizing Committee will cover the administrative fees for the cancellation, to ensure that there is no cost to you

  2. Hotel reservations have all been cancelled. A confirmation will be sent to you by the Queen Elizabeth Hotel.

  3. If you wish to receive the list of participants who were scheduled to attend, please submit a written request to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (available for registred participants)


In the interest of full disclosure, the Montreal Wood Convention Organizing Committee would like to explain why we did not announce earlier that the event was to be cancelled.

We have been abiding by all government and public health guidelines related to COVID-19 prevention as they are issued. A short period of time was necessary for us to settle contractual agreements with a number of suppliers. As soon as this step was completed, we were able to inform you on Friday, March 13, of the cancellation of the Convention.

Please accept our apologies if this delay in communication has caused you any inconvenience. We sincerely hope to have you with us next year.

The Organizing Committee
