Why You Should Register NOW...

The Canadian dollar is currently very low in relation to the US dollar and several other currencies. The last time it was this low was about 12 years ago. So we hope you will take advantage of the significant savings while you can.

Below are some of our registration rates converted at today’s (September 23, 2020) rates to give you an idea of the savings:

Early bird rate for Full Congress (until March 31, 2021)
