Venues

The Symposium takes place Downtown Courtenay – at the Comox Valley Art Gallery (580 Duncan Ave), and Native Sons Hall (360 Cliffe Ave).

Accommodations

Many options are available in the Comox Valley for overnight accommodation. We suggest booking early given the timing of the symposium, which falls in peak tourism season. A few options within walking-distance include:
