Limited Additional Tickets

Limited additional tickets will be released as of 12:00 PM (noon) on May 13, 2020 based on availability and distributed equally.
Please note that this process is NOT first come first served. Please also note that some ceremonies may be sold out during the first round of ticket reservations.
If available, limited additional tickets may be booked from May 13, 2020 at noon until the morning of your ceremony.

Standby Lineup

Still hoping for last-minute seats for a sold out ceremony? For each sold out ceremony, there is a Standby Lineup at The Chan Centre as we often have last-minute no-shows.
It is recommended that your additional guests join the Standby Lineup 1 hour before the ceremony begins. Overflow seating is available in the Royal Bank Cinema at the Chan Centre.
Please note that there is no guarantee for seat availability in the Standby Lineup.

Accessible Seating

Guests who need assistance should arrive 30 minutes early and identify themselves to a Chan Centre staff member upon arrival.  Efforts will be made to pre-seat the party together prior to the concert hall opening to the public.
