CHF Canada’s Annual Meeting is happening June 15-17, 2023, in our
beautiful Nation’s Capital at the Shaw Centre in downtown Ottawa. We look
forward to seeing you here!
Before you register, please read the following tips/info:
If you are registering more than one person from your co-op, you will need
to register each of them separately. When you complete the first
registration, you will see a button to “Register another” participant.
If, at a later date, you would like to register more members from your
co-op or organization, you can do so. The system will recognize your
history when the next person is registered.
The full registration fee includes a choice of several education
workshops, as part of the Member Education Forum (for co-op members) or
the Co-operative Management Conference (for co-op staff or managers).
We encourage you to choose your workshops when you register to ensure you
get your top picks. You can choose them at a later date, but as they fill
up quickly, you may lose access to your top choices. You can make changes
to your workshop selections until June 12 by emailing them to the Annual
Meeting Registrar. You will also be able to
change/choose workshops on site depending on availability.
If you are unable to select the Delegate or Alternate option, it means
someone from your co-op/organization may have already registered in that
role (limit of one Delegate and Alternate per co-op/organization).
If your co-op is a voting member of CHF Canada, you must first register a
Delegate before you can register additional attendees in other
- The cancellation (with refund) deadline is June 1st. The deadline for changing your registration type or requesting a substitution is June 12.
If you are registering someone else besides yourself, please answer all
questions as accurately as possible on their behalf.
Each participant registered from your co-op or organization must have a
unique email address.
You will receive a confirmation email once you submit your registration.
If you do not receive this email, please make sure to contact the
New in 2023:
As a pilot project to help encourage greater accessibility and reduce carbon
emissions, we are offering co-ops the opportunity to register a
Virtual Delegate. This option provides you with the ability to vote
and participate online as your co-op’s delegate in the National Business
Meeting, taking place from 10:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 17.
Virtual Delegates will be able to watch a livestream of the business
meeting, vote, and ask questions online. This option does not include access
to any other events of the Annual Meeting. If your co-op registers a Virtual
Delegate, they will not be able to register a second Delegate to vote on
site, and vice-versa.
Want to see what your carbon emission savings would be with this option?

are asking for donations to Operation Come Home, an organization dedicated to preventing homeless
youth from becoming homeless adults. If you’d like to contribute, you can do
so when you register.
