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 registration types.
  • 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 Registrar

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.

  • Early bird fee: Save $150 on your registration fee if you register by Thursday, May 11.
  • Young member discount: All co-op members or staff 35 years of age or under are eligible for 40% off any full registration type.
  • Small co-op discount: If your co-op is between 1 and 50 units, you are eligible for 30% off any full registration type.
  • Group rates for CMC attendees: Register one staff member from your organization, and all additional staff members receive 20% off.
  • Travel rebate: Co-ops that pay more than $950 for their delegate’s airfare can get money back from the travel pool.

Donations :
Each year, we ask for donations to an organization that helps people experiencing homelessness in our host city. This year, we 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.

Cancellation policy:
The cancellation date (to receive a refund minus a $25 admin fee) is June 1, 2023. All cancellations must be received by the Registrar in writing. In the event that CHF Canada has to cancel the 2023 Ottawa Annual Meeting as a result of a future COVID-19 outbreak, extreme weather event, or any other event that puts the health and safety of attendees at risk, refunds will be provided in full. Full refunds will also be provided to conference attendees who test positive for COVID-19 one week before the conference begins. Pro-rated registration refunds will be provided for isolation time should you test positive during the event. Local health protocols will be followed.
