Political Action Day has education/training sessions on key issues facing the province. We host a luncheon with the Leader of the Official Opposition, and the evening includes a networking opportunity with members of the provincial government caucus during a cocktail reception and dinner. This provides an excellent opportunity to meet one-on-one with key government leaders.
Have an issue or concern you'd like government feedback on? Attendees are encouraged to engage MLA's during the Q & A session after dinner.
*Please note a $25 discount will be given with the combination purchase of tickets for MP Dinner on Oct 12th and MLA Dinner on Oct 13th. Refunds will be issued after the events to the credit card used to purchase the tickets.
Downtown accommodation will be extremely limited due to the opening of the new arena. It’s strongly recommended rooms be booked well in advance, as the block is limited. The Hotel will continue to accept reservations after September 19th, on a space available basis at the current available rates.
PARKING: Hotel parking is available at the prevailing rates of $31.00 per day for self-parking, or $39.00 per day for valet parking. *Please note: Parking prices are subject to change without notice, as the hotel does not own the parking facilities.
