Registration is now closed. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Online registration for the conference is being handled through University of Saskatchewan Conference Events. Once you have successfully registered, you will receive an email confirmation and receipt. We are accepting registration payments via VISA, MasterCard, and AMEX.


Changes to an incomplete online registration form cannot be saved for later. If you navigate away from an incomplete form, it will be blank when you return to it.

You will be required to create an account in order to complete the registration form. If you have used the USask online conference registration system before, you may get a message that you already have an account. If you do not know your password, the easiest solution is likely to use a different email address. If not, contact Conference Event Services at 306-966-5539 or

When you register for the full conference, you will be asked to indicate if you will be attending the Thursday evening dinner and reception. A ticket to the dinner will be included in your full conference registration package.
