Procedures & Event Safety

Meeting, Event and Conference Services (MECS) have been working diligently to plan for a safe and gradual resumption of activities for our event attendees and our staff in alignment with guidelines from government and provincial health authorities. From how our team interacts with event attendees, to enhancements to our cleaning and sanitization procedures, to more thoughtful use of our spaces including updated room capacities, we have revised our processes to support the safety of those using our facility and our team. We will continue to adapt processes as necessary, keeping safety top of mind and adhering to public health and WorkSafeBC guidelines.

SFU Meeting and Gathering Guidance


The Safe Work plan is required for in-person meetings and gatherings organized by MECS. 

  • This includes seated and non-seated events
  • Catering provided to a departmental managed space


External guests

  • Few external people may be invited to SFU events, so long as it aligns with the event’s safe work plan. In Stage 3, ticketed events are not available to the public. However, a graduate student can invite family members to a thesis presentation. Please continue to consult for requests made in Stage 3.
  • When the province moves to Step 4 and SFU moves to Stage 4, we will resume to normal operation of meetings and gatherings
