Child Care

ASA continues its long tradition of providing an on-site program of activities for children of Annual Meeting registrants. Arrangements have again been made with KimberLee Care to offer a full child care program for children between the ages of 6 months to 12 years during the following time intervals.

  • Saturday, August 12 from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm
  • Sunday, August 13 from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm
  • Monday August 14 from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm
  • Tuesday, August 15 from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm

The Child Care Service will be located in the Palais des Congres de Montreal. Families wishing to enroll their children in the child care program must preregister for the Annual Meeting and submit payment for the services by July 11, 2017. The fees for the child care program are $55 USD per child, per day or $35 USD per child, per half day (defined as five hours or less). After preregistration and payment is received, you will be contacted to submit your child's information and expected schedule. Child care program enrollment will be added to preregistration on May 1, 2017.


Several financial assistance scholarships are available to provide reduced daily usage fees for children of unemployed or low-income members/students. To apply for a scholarship, write a letter identifying your membership status and requesting a child care scholarship and attach the confirmation of your meeting registration and send it to:

Space for Non-Preregistrants

It is unlikely that non-preregistered families can be accommodated on-site. The service staffing is contracted based on the number and age of preregistered children, and on-site adjustments are limited.
