Latest Update

March 12, 2012: Register now for early-bird savings

Register today for The landscape of Canadian language: word nerds gone wild and take advantage of the $350 early-bird rate for members. But hurry—after April 11, this discount flies the coop (rate increases to $430). The rate for student members is $290.

Non-members are welcome, so encourage fellow word nerds to join us in Ottawa June 1–3.

Invest in yourself with three days of professional development, starting with a choice of four pre-conference workshops.

  • Networking at Events
  • Curating the Web: Opportunities for Professional Editors
  • Winning Contracts with the Government of Canada
  • The Professional Communicator’s Guide to Social Media

Speed mentoring is back, but the offering for senior editors is changing its spots. Stay tuned for more on Birds of a feather: the unconference session for experienced editors. Check the website often for more details on all the sessions and speakers.

Don’t forget to register for conference buddies and the Thursday night dinner too.

Come for the conference, stay for the experience. Find out about social events and browse the Ottawa Experience for ideas on how to enjoy the nation’s capital. Fox and Squirrel guarantee this habitat has something for everyone.

Also browse our accommodations page for suggestions on hotels, hostels and B&Bs. Or you can bunk up with Beds for Eds, the conference billeting service (and if you live in the Ottawa–Gatineau area, volunteer to host out-of-town members!).

See you in Ottawa!

Christine LeBlanc and Gael Spivak, Conference Co-Chairs
