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, 2 light breakfasts, 2 mid-morning snacks, 2 lunches, and 2 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 maxiumum 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 email@example.com 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. If you need to cancel within 3 weeks to the event, 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 Saskatoon session (November 14-16), refunds less a $150 admin fee will be issued until October 24, 2017. Substitutions are available at no extra charge until November 7, 2017. 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's learning events are designed to provide community change leaders with theoretical knowledge and practical tools that they can apply to their work. To help reduce financial barriers, Tamarack's Be a Light Scholarships support individuals and/or groups to participate in our Learning Events.
For the Evaluation + Design workshop, priority will be given to applicants who are early career community change leaders, youth leaders or work for a small not-for-profit.
Scholarships can only be applied to the registration portion of the Learning Event. Any additional costs incurred, including travel, hotel, and incidental costs, must be covered by the individual and/or their sponsoring organization.
To apply for a scholarship, please submit your application online.
The deadline to apply for a scholarship is November 1st. If you have any inquiries relating to scholarships, please reach out to Stephanie.
Travel and accommodation costs are not included as part of the conference fee. The event will take place at the Triwood Community Association (2244 Chicoutimi Dr NW, Calgary, AB T2L 0W1), in Charleswood Hall. The venue is easily accessible via public transit and there is plenty of free parking nearby.
