Tamarack is a charitable organization and has secured support from our sponsors to provide this training at a reduced cost to the participants. In our experience, learning opportunities are better translated into action when a committed group of learners attends together. Therefore we are offering subsidies for colleagues who enroll together.
The registration rates (in Canadian dollars) are as follows:
Your registration fee covers workshop tuition, light breakfasts, mid-morning snacks, lunches, and afternoon snacks.
*Tamarack encourages groups to register together and provides a registration fee discount for this. From time to time, Tamarack may offer additional discounts for our learning events. Individuals and groups may access a maximum of one discount per registration process.*
Payments can be made in the following three ways:
1. PayPal - to pay using your credit card via PayPal, simply register, select "Pay Online" as your payment method and follow the prompts to submit your payment online using PayPal. You will still receive an invoice for your records.
2. Credit Card - to pay using your Master Card or Visa over the phone, please register and select to be invoiced for your registration. Then, email Jana at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a credit card payment appointment.

We know that you don't want to miss out on this exciting learning event, but understand that sometimes unanticipated changes can affect your plans. This is why we have a cancellation policy that allows us to refund your registration fee up to 3 weeks in advance of the workshop start date, less a $150 administration charge which we need to put towards our overhead costs. At 20 days before the workshop, we are sorry that we can no longer offer refunds, but will gladly admit confirmed substitutions up to 1 week in advance of the workshop so that someone else can benefit from the training.
For the Edmonton session (February 28 - March 2), refunds less a $150 admin fee will be issued until February 7, 2018. Substitutions are available at no extra charge until February 23, 2018. If no substitute is available, a full credit will be issued for use at any Tamarack learning event within one year of the event date.
Tamarack hosts a number of single and multi-day learning events annually. These learning events are designed to provide participants with theoretical knowledge and practical tools that community change leaders can utilize in their work. The Be A Light Scholarship initiative is designed to support individuals and/or groups to participate in a Tamarack Learning Event. The Tamarack Scholarship can only be applied to the registration portion of the Learning Event. Any additional costs incurred to attend the Tamarack Learning Event, including travel, hotel, and incidental costs must be covered by the individual and/or their sponsoring organization. To apply for a scholarship, fill out the application form.
Deadline for Scholarship applications is February 7, 2018.
The workshop will take place at the Santa Maria Goretti Centre is located right beside Commonwealth Stadium, which is easily accessible via public transit. The full address is: 11050 90 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5H 1S5.
Travel and accommodation costs are not included as part of the conference fee. Based on your feedback, this year we are hoping to host more learning events in community spaces rather than hotels. This will provide a deeper appreciation of the community, it's employees and local caterers. If you're looking for hotels in the area, we recommend The Hyatt Place Edmonton/Downtown, The Sutton Place Edmonton Hotel or The Westin Edmonton. These hotels are centrally located in downtown Edmonton and approximately a 10 minute drive to the Santa Maria Goretti Centre. There are also plenty of great Airbnb's within walking distance of the venue. The Santa Maria Goretti Centre is located right beside Commonwealth Stadium, which is easily accessible via public transit.
