Housing

A housing bureau is a centralized system that instantly links delegates to a main page detailing the CCC's official hotels. From there, delegates can view information on each official CCC hotel (make comparisons) and complete their hotel room reservation based on their preferences, such as cost or proximity to venue.

You play an important role in the financial viability of the Congress. Here's how you benefit from using the Housing Bureau and booking your hotel within the block:

  • Lower rates and additional services which sometimes include free internet, parking, etc.
  • Short walk from your Congress-endorsed hotel to the Convention Centre
  • Help the Congress avoid possible attrition penalties

You must first register for CCC 2017 to access the Housing Bureau. A link will be provided after you register. After making your hotel reservation, you will receive a confirmation from the Housing Bureau that will show the hotel and dates that you have booked.

Yes you can. In your registration confirmation email, you will find a link to the Housing Bureau. You may book your hotel through the Housing Bureau at any time until the cut-off date once you are registered.

The last day to book your hotel at the Housing Bureau is mid-September.

Nurses attending the Canadian Council of Cardiovascular Nurses (CCCN) Scientific Program may claim it as a Continuous Learning (CL) activity towards renewal of the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) certificate credential if it is related to their nursing specialty.
