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. Recognizing that this might be a burden for some people in these challenging times, we have reduced the fee to 10% for 2023. We will seek to offset the reduction through sponsorships so we can continue to support the same level of Lived Experience participation.
Lived Experience Participant Registration Category
Individuals with lived experience of homelessness may select this fee to receive a more than 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 Bursaries 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.
Student Registration Category
A limited number of student spaces are available. To qualify for the student rate, the student registration must be received and paid by no later than September 22, 2023 at 11:59 pm (EST). Students must provide proof of full-time registration as an undergraduate, Masters or PhD student at a Canadian post-secondary institution in a program related to homelessness. Please email a letter from your Dean indicating your student status to .
