Step 2: On the Payment Confirmation page click on REGISTER ANOTHER PERSON (you may have to scroll down), this will bring you to a blank registration form. Step 3: Complete Steps 1 and 2 for additional group members, when all group members are registered, click the appropriate payment button to complete the payment for the registration(s).

Inclusion Fee

Engaging people with lived experience of homelessness is a priority for the CAEH. Following our 2017 conference, the vast majority of respondents to our post-conference survey supported the addition of a 15% inclusion fee on all non lived experience registrations, to support greater lived experience participation in the conference. We are continuing this fee for CAEH19 which will allow us to offer discounted registration for up to 150 people.

Lived Experience Participant Registration Category

Individuals with lived experience of homelessness may select this fee to receive a 50% discount on conference registration. This fee is made available on the ‘honour system’ and no proof of lived experience is required. We hope participants will respect the intent of including people with lived experience. This discounted registration will be available on a ‘first come first served’ basis and when the limit is reached it will be closed. This fee is offered in addition to our Lived Experience Scholarship program. Lived experience participants will receive a regular participant badge at the conference and will not be identified as a lived experience participant without express consent.
