Please note: organizations other than those listed may give credits for attending Cannexus; it is best to check directly with your association.

CERIC secures economical rates, subject to availability, at nearby hotels. Learn more about these hotels at the Cannexus.ca website Hotel & Travel page.
Discounted booking codes for these hotels will be provided to delegates upon registering for Cannexus. The earlier you register for Cannexus, the earlier you can book your room and secure your spot in one of the contracted hotels.
We urge all delegates to reserve their rooms as early as possible. In the past, room rates and availability have expired as early as mid-September.
Travel discounts are arranged with several providers, which have regularly included Porter Airlines, WestJet, Air Canada and VIA Rail Canada. Discount information can be found on the Cannexus.ca Hotel & Travel page.
When you register online, you will be asked to provide us with any dietary concerns. All restrictions are then submitted to the Shaw Centre prior to Cannexus. Banquet staff are always available during the meals to guide delegates through the buffet tables, and identify food options corresponding to any existing restrictions. Though we do our best to account for general restrictions and preferences (Gluten free, vegan, etc.), it is not always possible to fulfill all requests.
To accommodate delegates with severe allergies, a meal is usually set aside on-site, and delegates will be notified separately beforehand with any instructions.
Cannexus ensures that all hotels and meeting venues are fully accessible and meet the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). Please ensure you request an adapted room when you make your hotel reservations.
Cannexus does not charge a registration fee for a support person. Ensure that you include the full name of your support person in the “Special Needs/Dietary Concerns” section of registration.
Accessibility accommodation requests are considered on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Sandra Francescon email@example.com to discuss your needs prior to registering. Although we will work closely with you to address your special needs, it is not always possible to fulfill all requests.
In response to health concerns, CERIC prohibits the use of scented products at its events. Scented products such as hair sprays, perfume and scented deodorants may trigger reactions such as respiratory distress and headaches. In consideration of others, people attending Cannexus are asked to refrain from using scented products. Your co-operation is appreciated.
