Accreditation

Ministerial meetings

Media representatives who wish to cover a ministerial event must apply for accreditation and obtain an identification badge. Detailed information on how to apply for accreditation is sent separately prior to each event. Only accredited media with an identification badge will have access to the meeting site.

Once your accreditation is approved, you will receive an email inviting you to install the My G7 Web application. This tool will allow you to have real-time access to information and receive alerts informing you of any changes to an event that you have been accredited for. If you do not receive the email in your inbox, please remember to verify your junk mail box.

Environment

The 2018 G7 Summit was a sustainably managed event. Efforts were made to reduce our environmental footprint, with recycling and waste diversion mechanisms in place at the main and sub-media centers, and an effort to reduce the use of disposable plastics during the event.
