The registration fees listed below are in Canadian dollars.  13% HST will be added to these fees.

The registration fees include access to the Magnetic North Conference and all events organized as part of the CAP’s Congress held during the week of June 6-11, as well as the best student oral competition final that will be held the following week.

For high school teachers, the registration fee includes the High School Teachers Workshop scheduled for the afternoon of Sunday, June 6th.

The Sunday evening Herzberg Memorial Lecture will be a free live-streamed YouTube broadcast.  No prior registration required.

As the 2021 Congress is being offered virtually, the costs associated with running the Congress are lower than are associated with in-person events; however, there are still costs involved that need to be recovered, including among other things, the costs of the Congress management software and the staff time associated with the Congress. The fee structure that has been adopted for this year was set following a careful review of both of those factors.
