CPS is dedicated to providing a welcoming, respectful, safe, and accessible environment for all conference attendees. We’d like to make your stay a bit more comfortable by offering these services at the conference.
The CPS is supporting nursing mothers by providing a safe, secure and private Mother’s Lounge at this year’s Annual Conference. This space includes a quiet cubicle, a comfortable lounge chair, table with lighting, and a baby change area with diapers and wipes. You will need to bring your own breast pump, but a storage area will be provided so that you won’t have to carry it around, along with a refrigerator for storing expressed milk. Running water is readily available in nearby restrooms. A key is needed to access this room, so be sure to ask for one at the registration desk when you arrive.
Babies younger than 2 years old may accompany registered attendees into conference sessions, workshops, trade show, co-developed sessions, and other activities, provided they are in a carrier and supervised at all times. When babies fuss or become a distraction for others, parents should step out of the room with them. Exceptions may apply, so we encourage attendees reach out and discuss specific needs with CPS conference staff.
For reasons of safety and security, conference sessions and exhibits are for registered attendees aged 18 years and older, unless otherwise noted. No child-minding facilities are provided on site, but hotel concierges can direct you to family care services, if needed.
When registering online, please indicate any dietary restrictions. We endeavour to choose menus that comply with all restrictions received from delegates. However, we cannot guarantee that menu items are free of trace amounts of allergens or other ingredients.
A quiet room will be made available for conference participants and guests s who need time for reflection, meditation or prayer. All are welcome, and worship mats are provided. Running water is readily available in nearby restrooms.
The CPS conference is a scent-free event. Please refrain from wearing cologne, perfume or other scented products.
The CPS strives to ensure that all educational and social events are fully accessible. If you have special needs or requests, contact the Education Department before the conference at 613-526-9397 ext. 248, or bring them to the attention of registration staff on site.
