Conference Fees

We have structured our registration costs so that by registering early you can save a significant amount on your registration costs. As always we also have special pricing for students attending a recognized post-secondary education institution.

Student Rates are for those currently enrolled in Secondary and Post-Secondary eduction and who are able to present a valid student ID during check-in.

Small Business/Enthusiast Rates are provided for those on a limited budget or who are paying their own registration fee personally.

Corporate/Government Rates are to allow those large organizations who derive income from the activities of the community to assist in the funding of the event. Our Corporate/Government rates remain more economical than industry normal.

Patron Sponsor Attendee is a new programme for 2011 that allows organizations without the funding to purchase a full sponsorship to support the event in a real meaningful way. There will be numerous on-site advantages to being a Patron Sponsor including invitations to all VIP events and display of your logo on your attendee badge. Additional details forthcoming. If you are considering sending 3 or more attendees please contact for additional sponsorship opportunities!

All prices are provided in Canadian Dollars and include 13% tax.

13% HST

Before April 15th

Presenters & Other Exceptions

Hosting a BoFS or giving a Lightning Talk does not include the free pass. There are also a number of volunteer positions granted free passes, contact us for more information if you would be interested.
