OHSWEKEN – Registration for the World Indigenous Peoples Conference on Education (WIPCE) is now open, and those hoping to take advantage of the early bird registration rate are encouraged to register soon.
“The WIPCE conference is unparalleled in its inspirational impact. It is an opportunity to affirm Indigenous knowledge and cultures, share best practices and recharge your batteries with hope and commitment for the future of Indigenous people and our planet,” said Rebecca Jamieson, President and CEO of Six Nations Polytechnic. “Six Nations Polytechnic extends a warm welcome to all to come and enjoy WIPCE 2017 for a positive and empowering experience.”
All delegates who book within the conference hotels will be verified and given a discounted registration fee. Those delegates not booking into an associated conference hotel will be required to pay the full registration fee. All hotels are in a reasonable walking distance. However, for those who prefer, complimentary conference transportation will be provided from the following hotels: Westin Harbour Castle; Sheraton Centre; Hilton Toronto; and the Chelsea hotel.
WIPCE will be held July 24 to July 29, 2017 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
“With under a year left to go until WIPCE 2017, excitement is building, the WIPCE Planning Committee and sponsors are working hard to ensure your experience in Toronto is exceptional. We all look forward to welcoming you to our territory and to a robust cultural exchange. Please feel free to reach out to us if you would like to showcase any cultural talent,” said Tuesday Johnson-MacDonald, President of TAP Resources and WIPCE Executive Producer.
In addition, workshop abstracts are still being accepted on an ongoing basis and the deadline has now been extended to October 31, 2016. For more information and to register please visit www.wipce2017.com.
