The Order cancels the JDIQ

On March 12, 2020, you received a message informing you that the planning for the Journées dentaires internationales du Québec (JDIQ) was still underway. Since that time, the Order has been in constant communication with authorities, including the Ministry of Health and Social Services and the Public Health Directorate. The rapid spread of coronavirus in Quebec now suggests a deterioration in terms of the public health situation.

The JDIQ is a special event that brings together members of our profession, enables exhibitors to connect with dental teams and provides us with the opportunity to deliver a range of continuing education sessions. While undeniable, these benefits do not outweigh the repercussions of the health crisis we are experiencing at the moment. In fact, nothing justifies putting at risk the health of participants and the public; this is a key priority for us at the Order.

We had many weeks left before the event, but all experts agree that even if the situation does improve, it would not be prudent to bring together such a large group of people so soon after a health crisis. This decision by the Board of Directors of the Order has been carefully deliberated and is supported by optimal risk management for the health of convention participants and surrounding communities.

As we await another opportunity to bring together dentists and their teams for training, we will be doing everything we can to facilitate access to quality programs, more specifically through our Dentoform platform. 

Refund of registration fees

Everyone with an active registration as of today’s date will receive a full refund (100%) of the registration fees. We will also reimburse the registration cancellation fees held since March 16, inclusive.

This situation is unprecedented. Please know that we will do everything in our power to make sure the refunds are sent to you as quickly as possible.

On behalf of the entire JDIQ team, we would like to thank you warmly for your interest in the Order’s convention. We look forward to seeing you at the 50th JDIQ, which will be held from May 28 to June 1, 2021, and invite you to visit our Website and Facebook page.

PRIVACY POLICY

USE BY THE JDIQ

The Journées dentaires internationales du Québec (JDIQ) are committed to protecting participants’ personal information (name, mailing address, e-mail address and telephone number). The JDIQ use this information only for purposes of organizing and following up on the event, and only in accordance with participants’ express consent when they register.

COMMUNICATION TO THIRD PARTIES

N.B. Because of the adoption of Canadian anti-spam legislation on July 1, 2014, the JDIQ will not share participants’ e-mail addresses with any third parties. It will be up to each participant to expressly consent to having his or her e-mail address shared with selected speakers, exhibitors or sponsors. A participant’s personal information, including name, mailing address and telephone number, and whether or not he or she attends any of the activities organized under the auspices of the JDIQ, will be disclosed only with the participant’s consent. Participants will have the opportunity to consent to such disclosure by presenting their electronic registration badge for reading and validation, i.e.:

1. for Continuing Dental Education (CDE) units, to a JDIQ employee. Participants thereby consent to having their attendance, as it is recorded at that point, communicated by the JDIQ following the convention to the Ordre des dentistes du Québec, for purposes of allocating CDE units to their files;

2. for purposes of follow-up or commercial or philanthropic prospecting, to a speaker, exhibitor or sponsor. Participants thereby consent to having their names, telephone numbers and addresses communicated to the specific speaker, exhibitor or sponsor. The JDIQ agree to require of their speakers, exhibitors and sponsors that the personal information communicated to them will be used only by them and only for follow-up or commercial or philanthropic prospecting purposes.

It is agreed that the JDIQ assume no liability when delegates give their personal information, including their e-mail addresses, to parties other than the JDIQ.

For more information, contact us at inscription@odq.qc.ca or (514) 875-8511, ext. 2237.
