Located on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen people, this $25 million environmentally sustainable (LEED Silver rating), award-winning facility was financed and funded by Songhees Nation. We are excited about hosting our event at this new location and are committed to doing so in a way that honours the community’s recommendation to walk softly on the earth.

Hotel Accommodations

A preferred rate of $179.00 per night (sgl/dbl occupancy) for out-of-town conference attendees has been negotiated at the Hotel Grand Pacific. Centrally located at Victoria’s inner harbour, the hotel is a short drive to the venue or you may reserve a seat on the shuttle bus to/from the venue for an additional $30.00.

The hotel has kindly extended this preferred rate to delegates for three days before and after the conference – giving you the option to extend your stay in beautiful Victoria and have a proper getaway! Call early to reserve as space is limited. 

Sense of Place

We are grateful to the Xwsepsum (Esquimalt) and Lekwungen (Songhees) families, who continue to share their knowledge about the history of the lands and their cultural practices, and on whose ancestral lands this conference will take place.
