The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has determined that the legal status of FCM must change from charitable to not-for-profit. This change in legal status results in taxable registration fees for FCM conferences. In keeping with not-for-profit regulations, registration fees are taxed based on the location where the conference is held. In 2017, the conference is being held in Ontario and the applicable 13% is being applied. Each municipality is entitled to claim the applicable input tax credit (ITC).

Important: all students must be full-time students and show proper proof of current enrollment (student ID) when they register.

Child Minding Services

Delegates will be able to take advantage of child minding services that will be provided, for the first time, at the 2017 Annual Conference and Trade Show. To take advantage of the services, delegates will be asked to register as part of the conference registration process. FCM staff will follow up with delegates who have registered for the services to complete all appropriate forms as needed by the Child Minding Services provider.

Child Minding Registration Fees

  • Full Conference: $70.00 + HST per child
  • Daily: $30.00 + HST per child

Carbon Offset Fees

In keeping with FCM’s efforts to reduce the environmental impact of its events, all registrations automatically include an optional carbon offset fee to offset greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from air travel to the conference. The fee is calculated based on a return flight from the most populous city in your province to the conference location — Ottawa. 100% of this fee will be paid to Carbonzero and invested in a Canadian project that permanently retires GHG emissions. The fee is optional and if you wish to opt out from participating, simply select “Remove from Cart” next to the carbon offset fee in your shopping cart when confirming registration.

Shopping Cart

Items in your shopping cart will be available for 24-hours only. After that period, all items will be released.
