cultural and educational bus tours
Two free bus tours (both including a free lunch) will be available to those who register for the full conference. We are grateful to our tourism sponsors for demonstrating faith in our educational educators as potential organizers of study abroad programs in Eastern Canada once they return back to their home campus.
We are not a travel agency and we have no individual tours to sell. Nor do we have free tickets for family members who do not register as guests. Children under six years of age are not allowed in our programs even if they are registered as guests.
Your conference registration receipt will serve as your bus ticket! Show your receipt to the bus driver to board the bus.
