Media Accreditation Instructions

Instructions for Registering for a Media Badge

  • You must be a member of an established local, national or international media organization with relevant identification; or a freelancer holding a letter of assignment on the official letterhead of a media organization signed by the publisher, assignment editor or bureau chief. The letter must specify your name and title, and the period for which accreditation is being sought.
  • If you hold a CADSI account, you must log in to your account on the next screen (CADSI LOGIN) and follow the instructions.
  • If you do not already hold a CADSI account, you must create one by clicking the SIGN UP FOR FREE button on the next screen (CADSI LOGIN) and following the instructions.
  • Once your registration is complete, a notification will be sent to CADSI. We will process your application and send you an email to notify you of your status. If approved, the email will include your registration confirmation which you must print and bring with you to the event.

Our goal is to ensure a professional environment for media, exhibitors, trade show attendees and event staff. We request that all media complete the registration process in advance of the tradeshow to ensure that individuals seeking a media pass are working journalists or technical support staff representing recognized media organizations.

CADSI welcomes the use of photography and video throughout CANSEC 2022. However, we remind all media that due to the sensitive and competitive nature of the industry, not all participants will welcome having their faces or products recorded or photographed. It is CADSI's policy that, prior to recording or photographing a person or product, media should ensure they have consent from the person or persons responsible.
