Events & Activities

Icebreaker – Friday February 22, 6-9 pm

An icebreaker reception will be held at the M.J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue in ICBC Concourse 5 on Friday, February 22. Light snacks will be provided and a cash bar will be available. Poster boards will be available for setup.

Dinner – Saturday February 23

Following the first day of the workshop, you are invited to join us at one of the fine local establishments (yet to be determined…stay tuned).   The dinner is not included in the registration, but we hope you’ll join us nonetheless.

Enjoy Vancouver in the winter

February in Vancouver is often cool and wet, but there can be the occasional warm and sunny day. Temperatures typically range between 0 °C to 10 °C.

The meeting is being held downtown, so there is a lot to see and do outside of the meeting, such as a walk along the water front or stroll through Stanley Park. If you are able to spend a few days here before or after the workshop, the local ski hills will be in full swing (Cypress, Grouse and Seymour), where you can downhill ski, cross-country ski (Seymour and Cypress only) or snowshoe. If you want to go farther afield, Whistler is about 140 km north on the Sea-to-Sky highway. Be aware though that driving times can vary considerably depending on the time of day and weather conditions.

Drink beer

Vancouver is home to a number of amazing local breweries. The Steamworks Brew Pub is just down the street from the J. M. Wosk Centre, but there are many others to explore.
