Lodging

In order to keep lodging costs as low as possible we are offering all lodging options at cost, based on Pearson’s lodging and meal charges. Staying overnight and sharing meals is an important part of the camaraderie and networking inherent in our in-person conference. So we encourage all attendees to maximize their conference experience by taking advantage of the comfortable lodging and delicious meals offered by Pearson College. In fact, part of the charm and beauty of the campus is its remote location at the southern tip of Vancouver Island, where off-campus dining, shopping, and accommodations are not readily available nearby.
