    About the Program

    Our new program approach is designed to appeal to four participant streams: journalists, communicators, scientists, and knowledge mobilizers and translators (KMBs). There are plenary sessions that are relevant to all participants and small group, hands-on workshops for each stream.

    Notes before you register:

    Registration includes a buffet lunch on each of the conference days. Evening meals and lunch during the tours will be the responsibility of individual delegates. 

    Dine Around: Each restaurant has limited space set aside for 8 SWCC delegates available on a first come basis. If your first choice is marked full you must choose another restaurant. This will be a pay as you go social evening.

    Tours: There are two tour options on Saturday. Both tours include Parliament Hill and Bridgehead Coffee Roastery and, in addition, you will have the option for either: 

    Diefenbunker & Canadian Space Services Ltd.


    Experimental Farm & Algonquin College Construction Lab

    Note the tours will be an additional $20.00. Lunch is not provided, but will be coordinated by the organizers.
