Examining the Psychedelic Renaissance

2020 MAPS Canada Webinar


Frequently asked questions regarding the 2020 webinar series

First, register online at www.mapscanada.org/webinars. You can register for the series pass (best value), or for just one or two, or as many as you’d like. Your Eventbrite ticket confirmation will be emailed to you after you register—you may need to wait up to 10 minutes to receive it, and be sure to check your spam folder if you don’t see it. You will receive instructions and an access link for joining your webinar session(s) in the few hours leading up to each session. You will be required to provide the name and email address you registered with before entering the webinar. Please be sure to use the email address that you provided with your registration (the one you used to purchase your ticket on Eventbrite).

Episodes will run from May 26th – Aug 18th 2020.  All webinar episodes take place from 3:00 PM PT – 4:30 PM PT on Tuesdays. There is a chance an episode may be moved, or a time shifted, but if this is the case, you will be notified. 

Each episode will be 90mins total and will usually consist of… 

• Introduction

• A 20-45min presentation 

• A moderated Q/A session


Registration for an individual session is $22. You can also register to gain access to the entire series for $111 (save $43). All webinar proceeds support psychedelic research and education. We also invite you to make an additional gift to MAPS at checkout to help make sure the psychedelic research renaissance continues.

A discount is being offered for the full series only, not for individual sessions. If you are a senior (65+), student, military, veteran, or low income, you can pay $75 for the entire series — the option may be selected at check-out. MAPS is a non-profit with no government funding for psychedelic research and all proceeds from this support psychedelic research and education.

If you are experiencing severe economic hardship from COVID-19, please write to webinar@mapscanada.org and we will do our best to assist you.

Registration for individual webinars is open until 15 minutes before they start. Series passes can be purchased until registration closes for the last webinar on August 18th, 2020, at 2:45 AM PST. 

You will be able to register for individual webinars up to 15 minutes before they start. You can join the webinar at any time while it’s in session.

You will receive a secure link to the webinar shortly before that webinar episode is scheduled. This will be sent to the same email that you used to purchase your ticket from Eventbrite.

Anyone may ask a question during the webinar using the built in Q/A function in Crowdcast. The moderator will direct questions to speakers when appropriate. You’re encouraged to think about your questions in advance—remember to look at the supplemental materials that you received in your registration email!

If you need to cancel your attendance, we will offer refunds until 24 hours before each webinar. All refunds require a 3% processing fee. Please allow 5-10 business days to process your refund. To request a refund, send your email registration receipt to webinar@mapscanada.org along with your name, email address you used to register, and the reason for your refund request.

You can give your friend permission to use your name and email to log in, but each email can only be used once and it must be the same email used to register.

Yes! In case you’re not able to attend the live session, video recordings of each webinar will be provided to all registered attendees. Webinar recordings are expected to be privately sent to you via email within approximately two weeks following the webinar session. Even if you register for the whole series after the webinars have started, you’ll still get access to the recordings of all sessions.

Webinar transcriptions will be available when the video recordings are sent to webinar attendees in the weeks following the live sessions. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide live webinar transcriptions.

No, but we hope to offer professional education credits for our webinars in the future.

Your email address will only be used to support your webinar attendance. If you wish to receive regular email updates and news from MAPS Canada, please visit www.mapscanada.org 

Email webinar@mapscanada.org and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. Please note that in the hour before a webinar begins we may not be able to respond quickly, so send your questions as soon as you have them.
