In addition to it being IACA’s 40th Annual Conference year, 2017 is the 150th anniversary of Confederation. As Canada’s gift to you, the 2017 Discovery Pass will provide free admission for the entire year to Parks Canada places from coast-to-coast to coast.

Are you a runner – or do you want to be?  The start date of IACA 2017 coincides with our annual city marathon known as the Scotiabank Bluenose Marathon.  In addition to a full and half marathon, there are also 5km, 10km and youth events.  Visit the event website for more information or to register.


Important Information Regarding Travel to Canada


In 2016, new entry requirements took effect for international travelers to Canada. US Citizens are exempt, but all other visa-exempt foreign nationals will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to or transit through Canada. The cost is only CAD $7 and it is easy to apply online, but it is required in advance of travel. For more information on the eTA, visit Canadian Immigration and Citizenship.  All travelers to Canada, including US Citizens, require a valid passport. Be sure yours is up to date.!
