Yellowknife is a unique urban outpost of a town that has all the modern amenities of a large city in the middle of a vast subarctic wilderness. Within minutes you can escape the bustle of “downtown” to be in the midst of nature trails, lakes, and waterfalls where you can experience an abundance of wildlife and adventure.

Come a little early or stay a little longer and take the time to explore Yellowknife above and beyond the Symposium. It will be an experience you’ll never forget!

The CSBC looks forward to welcoming you in Yellowknife this September 2016!
