Accommodations for the National Seminars and AGM Posted on Oct 20th, 2008

Post a comment


I am writing to see who will require accommodation in Whistler during the National Seminars and AGM from Dec. 4 - 8, 2008. The Pacific Region Refresher sessions will run concurrent with these sessions. More details will be published soon at www.cansi.ca. CANSI will organize accommodations on behalf of out of town attendees on a shared room, dormitory style, with kitchen basis. The cost estimate is $50 per night per person depending on how many people express interest. It may be less and we will do our best to seek out the best deal. Please register for the seminars and AGM on line at www.cansi.ca/en/courses/. There are options in them for accommodations.
