LECTURES
Reserved seats

All the lectures will be presented at the Maxwell Cummings Auditorium, 1379-A Sherbrooke Street West. As the number of seats in the auditorium is limited, it is necessary to obtain a pass for a reserved seat. A service charge of $4 per pass will be applied.

The print quality of the pass is not  important, as long as the date, time, name of the activity and seat number are legible. Instead of printing the pass, you may download it to your smartphone.
