To certify that they are covering the conference on their organization’s behalf, freelance journalists must provide a letter of assignment, written and signed by an editor, on the official letterhead of a recognized news entity.

Media personnel must register on site at the conference registration desk and check in with CPS staff in the Media Room (Office #1 of the PEI Convention Centre) before they can be admitted to sessions. Media badges allow admission to all plenary sessions, seminars and workshops, and must be worn at all times.

To reach CPS media relations staff before or after the annual conference, call 1-613-526-9397 ext. 247, between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm (EST). Once on site, starting June 22, contact staff in the Media Room (Office #1 of the PEI Convention Centre). The Media Room provides interview space and Internet access.

Media services

CPS media relations staff can assist journalists by providing background information on child health issues and helping to set up interviews with speakers, CPS representatives or designated spokespeople.

Question-and-answer periods in sessions and workshops are reserved for delegates. Journalists should request an interview with a speaker from CPS media relations staff or wait until the session is over before approaching a presenter personally.
