Local hotels can only save rooms until the 28th of February, after that, rates and availability may change. 

On Friday, April 26 the conference committee is pleased to announce that will be a key note speaker.

Mark Wafer is the former President and CEO of Abilities Canada. 

Abilities Canada is a fully inclusive sports complex and inclusion incubator.  Until recently he was the owner of 14 successful Tim Hortons Restaurants in Toronto. 

Mark is an internationally recognized expert on the economics of inclusion. He is an advisor to both the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario; he is responsible for Canada’s national disability employment strategy as well as the reform of basic income for Canada’s disabled. He is also an Honorary Canadian Citizenship officiant. 


Since 2021, it has been the dream of our current 5040 District Governor, Shirley-Pat Gale, to renew the vision of our past district governor, David Hamilton, by having a district conference in Terrace, BC, in partnership with the Nisga’a Nations and Mediators Beyond Borders International. This coming conference, Planting Seeds of Peace and Hope, is a testament to her dream being fulfilled, and it is becoming something even more meaningful.

Being respectful of the cultural traditions of our Nisga’a neighbours has meant that we have had to adjust some of our plans.
