Linux Symposium

Conference Fees

2011 is the first time in 13 years that we have changed our fee structure. We have also added several programmes to help people who could otherwise not afford to attend from attendance grants to helping with lodging arrangements and travel costs. If you're in this position please let us know and we'll see what can be done to help out.

Early Bird $124.99, Full Rate $199.99

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

Enthusiast/Small Business Rate

Early Bird $349.99, Full Rate $449.99

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

Corporate/Government Rate

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 Sponsorship Rate


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. Early bird rates apply until May 1st

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.
