*New* This page now contains 2017 information.

CanBIC has made arrangements with the following two local hotels in Parry Sound to block rooms for the conference from May 23rd to Saturday May 27th..

Parking is free at these hotels, as well as at the Stockey Centre. We will also be providing a conference shuttle bus which runs in the mornings and evenings from these hotels to the Stockey Centre.

If you wish to stay elsewhere, there are also several very nice Bed and Breakfast (B&B) hotels near the town centre as well as a few other hotels/motels. Please let us know before booking these other places so we can advise you on distances and other details.
