Thank you for your interest in Canadian Light Source tours!

We advise booking five (5) business days in advance of your desired time for all tours. Please allow up to two (2) business days for email confirmation of your booking.

We will be taking photographs during the tours, which may be used in an official capacity by the Canadian Light Source. If you would prefer not to have your photograph taken or published, please let us know.
