Registration Fees

This information is under review.

The 2020 conference maintains the conference fees that have been in force since 2016. However, an extra $25 is charged to every delegate as part of their registration fee to purchase carbon offsets that will compensate the travel impacts from all and the local environmental impacts of hosting the event in Ottawa.
