Workshop/Training Cancellation Policy:

We rely on your attendance to make important arrangements for workshops and/or training. If a participant needs to withdraw from a workshop/training, they must inform us no later than 8 days prior to the first day of the scheduled event. We will then refund your registration fee, minus a $25 administration fee. If payment has not yet been received a $25 administration fee will still be charged. If you withdraw from the event 7 days or less prior to the start date, your registration fee will not be refunded. Refunds cannot be made for participant no-shows. All refunds will be made in the manner in which payment was received.

If ECDSS needs to cancel a workshop, participants will be notified at least 14 days prior to the scheduled event and ECDSS will immediately issue refunds. All registration fees will be refunded IN FULL if we cancel an event due to low enrollment or instructor scheduling conflicts.

Workshop/Training registration is transferable to another individual within your organization, should you choose to withdraw your registration.

Payment Policy:

We are privileged to have practitioners from a variety of agencies and communities attend our workshop/training events. For this reason it is important that your payment is accurately received and recorded. Payment can be made by credit card during the registration process, or by cheque made out to: Early Childhood Development Support Services.

** Payment must be received at least 14 days prior to the event. Please include your invoice number, which is the same as your registrant ID number in order to correctly direct payment.

Once you register for an event you will receive a confirmation email at the email address used for the registration. This email is your invoice for registration and must be copied and sent with your payment for identification of above requirements.

If payment is not received 14 days prior to the start of the scheduled event ECDSS will contact the registrants and secure payment to hold the spot or for cancellation information.
