Frequently Asked Questions: Registrants

Educational Program

What timezone are the Educational Sessions in?


Please note that all times are listed in Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). This timing is made to accommodate speakers and guests from across Canada as best as possible. Remember - if you aren't able to tune in live to certain sessions, you can access the recorded educational sessions on this website after the conference is over! They will only be accessible by conference registrants, and available for up to 2 months after the conference.




How are you showing the Educational Sessions?


All conference registrants will have access to the live sessions, which will all be shown using a platform called Zoom Webinars (by Zoom). Zoom Webinars have certain features to help make your experience participating in these sessions as easy and interactive as possible!




How will I get invited to join the sessions on Zoom?


Every conference registrant will receive an email from NSWOCC detailing their registration for each day's sessions. This email will include a calendar invite and link to join that day's sessions. You will also get a reminder email with the link again closer to the start of the day so you can easily find it in your inbox. Remember - all emails will be sent to the same email you used to register for the conference. You will need to use your same email address to access Zoom and the Educational Sessions.




I don't see an email with the link to join the educational sessions on Zoom


Remember - all emails will be sent to the same email you used to register for the conference. You will need to use your same email address to access Zoom and the Educational Sessions. If you can't seem to find any emails from NSWOCC in your inbox, please check your junk/spam folder just in case. Make sure to add office@nswoc.ca to your contacts if you haven't already to avoid this in the future.




I wasn't available right at the beginning of the day...can I still attend these sessions midway through the day?


If you aren't able to join right at the beginning, don't worry! You can still join midway through the day and will be brought to the live feed.
