Social program

We have a number of social events planned for the congress to encourage networking with colleagues and offer a taste of good ol' east coast atmosphere.

East Coast Icebreaker - Sunday, June 10th, 6PM-8PM

Welcome to the East Coast! The ice breaker will be held at the Convention Centre with entertainment from one of Halifax’s very talented Celtic duos, The Fine Tuners. Appetizers will be served featuring Nova Scotia oysters. Don’t know how to shuck an Oyster? Our local expert will show you how it’s done. Cash bar will be open, but be sure to bring the drink ticket included in your registration package and have one on us.

Wellness Sessions

Get your blood flowing with a guided Yoga Class. The class will be held at the convention centre. Free to all, including spouses/guest.

Harbour Front Walk/Run - Wednesday June 13th (7:00-7:45AM)

What better way to start the day than a brisk walk (or run if you’re feeling energetic) along the Halifax waterfront on a beautiful summers day.

Trivia Pub Night - Monday June 11th (8PM)

Join us for pub night at Murphy’s on the Water. Don’t forget your thinking cap. Trivia will start at 9PM with prizes available to those who really know their stuff. Munchies will be provided and beverages available at happy hour prices all night.

Public Lecture -  Dr Chris Taggart - Right Stuff for the Right Whales - Tuesday June 12th (7PM)

The public lecture will be hosted at Halifax’s new Public Library on Spring Garden Rd. which itself is a sight to see as a winner of the Governor General’s architecture medal, winner of the Mayor’s prize in architecture, and voted one of the top 10 most beautiful libraries in the world.
