Can I come to only one day?

What is the dress code like?

The CLCA/ACCL Conference is a professional conference, but consider yourself among friends. Dress comfortably for long days of learning and networking – bring layers to ensure comfort as you move about.

The early autumn in Niagara Falls is generally mild during the day (10C-20C), with cooler nights (5C-10C). Consider bringing a raincoat as some sightseeing activities near the falls can include spray and mist.

Will you be able to accommodate special diets?

Conference meals will include vegan and gluten-free options at each meal/break. If you have additional specific needs, please email us at clca.accl@gmail.com .

Are CERPS available?

The CLCA/ACCL has applied for CERPS. The final number and type (L-,E-,R-) will be determined by IBCLE and communicated as soon as they are received.

Are you providing other continuing education credits?

For this conference, we will have applied for CERPS from IBCLE only. CERPS may used by several other certifying/accrediting bodies, including DONA, CAPPA and the Association of Ontario Midwives.
