The conference will be held at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada.



Established by the Sisters of Charity in 1873, Mount Saint Vincent University was one of the only institutions of higher education for women in Canada. At a time when women could not vote, the Mount provided an opportunity for women to learn and participate equally in society. 


The Mount is located just minutes from downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia and is recognized for its small class sizes and personalized approach to learning. A diverse mix of 4,000 women and men from across Canada and over 50 countries take advantage of the Mount’s programs and unique sense of community through on-campus classes or through distance learning opportunities.


Due to the distance from the conference hotel (and the downtown core of Halifax), a continuous shuttle will be running from the Westin Nova Scotian on conference days.
