VHF Registration Policy

Event registration entitles a participant to access to the live event, as well as access to the virtual event recording for a limited period of time following the event (if the virtual event is being recorded). Sharing of links for virtual events and recordings is prohibited.

VHF Cancellation Policy

For in-person events, we are unable to provide refunds or credits for cancellations received less than four (4) weeks prior to the event. For virtual events, we are unable to provide refunds or credits for cancellations received less than two (2) weeks prior to the event.

We cannot provide refunds or credits for non-attendance.

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19 close to the time of an in-person event, please review the BCCDC guidelines for recommended isolation protocols. If you are required to self-isolate during the time of the event, please inform VHF staff no later than 24 hours before the event. You will be issued a single-use credit voucher for the full amount to be used within the calendar year. We appreciate your cooperation to keep our staff and community safe.

External organizations that offer events in partnership with VHF reserve the right to set their own cancellation policy and may differ from VHF’s standard policy stated above.

We reserve the right to cancel an event due to insufficient enrollment or extreme weather. If an event is cancelled for any reason, VHF’s liability is limited to a refund of the event fee or a credit note.
