2018 National SUSK Congress

Dear students, alumni, and community partners,

We have more details to share with you regarding our upcoming Congress in Banff (May 3-6). Scroll down for information about Registration, Flights, Funding, AccommodationsZabava and other activities.

  • Delegate/Observer fees are at $140 – this includes meals, program, and the Saturday night Zabava
    • Early bird deadline is Friday April 6th. The Regular rate is $180.
    • Final registration is due Monday April 30th.

There are only 70 total spots available for the 2018 Congress.

To guarantee a spot, please:

  1. Fill out our Registration Form Here.
  2. Purchase your spot. Payment can be processed online


SUSK has secured a 10% off flight code with AirCanada: YYE3X3H1 

You may use another flight carrier if preferred. Prices tend to skyrocket within five weeks of flying date, so make arrangements by April 27th for the best rates. Smartphone Applications like ‘Hopper’ can help determine the best rates and times to book.

Note: Shuttles to the Banff Centre are provided from the Calgary airport. The program begins on Thursday May 3rd (7:00pm) and concludes on Sunday May 6th (11:00am). Commutes to and from Banff can take up to two hours – please allot yourself adequate time between the program and your flights.


Students flying from Eastern Canada will each be entitled to a $250 bursary to offset flight costs (~$500 if booked within reasonable time).

Students from Western Canada will be provided with $50 each to cover gas costs. We recommend coordinating carpooling with other students.

Further funding may be announced, pending on approval from grant partners.


As part of the conference, delegates and observers are required to stay at the Banff Centre, which charges $185/night ($230 with fees and taxes). We recommend students consider sharing up to 4-people rooms to save costs (there is a nominally higher fee for quad occupancy, but it is overall much more cost-effective).

Students will be assigned to a room following registration, then the Congress Organizer will connect them with the Banff Centre to identify who will be responsible for reserving the room. Rooms have already been blocked off for the Congress.


All students, alumni and community members are welcome to join us at the 2018 SUSK Banquet and Zabava!

The Banquet & Zabava is the concluding evening event at the Annual SUSK Congress. Our event will feature youth leaders from across the country, great food, a stellar band from Edmonton (our friends from Забава у Колі – Zabava u Koli), and an unforgettable evening in the Canadian Rockies.
