Catering and food
If you were granted a bursary, food is provided to you for the duration of your stay. A meal punch card will be given to you at check-in.
If you are not a bursary recipient and you wish to purchase meals on-site, the costs are as follows:
- Breakfast: 3,00 CAD
- Lunch: 7,50 CAD
- Supper 7,50 CAD
Each meal include non-alcoholic beverages. Lunch also includes a dessert.
You either pay for those items directly online when you register or pay in person when you arrive at the conference. To minimize waste and improve the catering process, only specific meals will be available for purchase. You will not be able to buy, for example, 3 breakfasts and 2 lunches: the day will have to be specified in advance when you buy the card.
To make our life easier, we recommend you pay them online.
When you first arrive at the conference venue, please pass by the front desk to get your meal tickets and your day plan punch cards.
- Breakfast: 7:45 to 9:45
- Lunch: 13:00 to 14:30
- Supper 19:00 to 20:30
Between July 31 and August 5th, meals will be served in the Interior garden.
Beginning August 6 at breakfast, meals will be served in the venue cafeteria.
All food prepared by our caterer is made in a peanut-free & nut-free kitchen.
Foods containing other major allergens such as gluten, dairy and egg will be clearly labeled.
If you have any food allergies or sensitivities, and plan on eating on campus, you will be able to alert the organizers by filling out a special field on the registration form.
