There are no more rooms in the Explorer Hotel but are some rooms at the newly opened Chateau Nova:http://www.novahotels.ca/chateaunovayellowknife.html. We have asked them to set aside a block of rooms under the Canadian Council on Ecological Areas, which will be released next Friday, October 14th.

You are invited to participate in the Canadian Council on Ecological Areas’ (CCEA) next national workshop Achieving All Aspects of Aichi Target 11 & Canada’s Target 1 – How Will We Know We’ve Achieved Our Goals? Second Session being held from October 24th to 27th 2016 at the Explorer Hotel, Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. For CCEA Members, including Directors, Associated Directors and Jurisdictional Representatives, you are also invited to stay the morning of Friday, October 28th 2016 for the CCEA’s 2016 Annual General Meeting.
Please see the workshop description on the CCEA website for more details.
Participants in the workshop are asked to provide their best, objective, science-based input to the workshop and not to represent agency or organizational positions per se. Participation is open to the community-at-large but space may be limited. The CCEA will contact organizations if the number of participants per organization needs to be limited due to space restrictions.
Registration for the national work is $500, with a special $300 rate for non-governmental organizations. 15 rooms has been reserved under the “CCEA” with a special room rate of $190 or $159 (for government employees). Please call the Explorer Hotel directly to have one of the CCEA reserved rooms assigned to you. Note: This is not a group booking and there is no code to provide the hotel. Hotel room cancellations may be made up to 24 hours prior to check-in, so you are encouraged to book your room even if you haven’t confirmed your participation.
Please refer to the registration form on the CCEA website for more information. We ask you to please provide your registration form or let us know of your interest to attend as soon as you can to help with us with finalizing logistics.
Participants are expected to seek coverage of the costs of their participation from their supporting agencies or organizations. CCEA has limited funding to assist participants with travel expenses, if they cannot otherwise be covered. Please let us know as soon as possible if you will require travel assistance in order to participate. Priority for use of travel funds will be to ensure balanced representation of experts from across Canadian protected area and conservation agencies or organizations, Aboriginal land-use planning organizations, IUCN, the scientific community and those in the fields of land stewardship and community land-use planning.
We look forward to seeing you in October. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
