Frequently asked questions


Where can I register?

Online registration can be completed directly through our website’s secure online platform.

Early bird, regular, and late registration fees will automatically be applied based on your registration date.

What do the registration fees include?

Registration fees give delegates access to all sessions, meals, breaks, and networking events. Please note that registration rates do not include applicable taxes — these will be added to your registration during checkout and will be listed as a separate line item on the payment receipt.

Are discounts available?

We are pleased to offer several discount options to make LCF as accessible as possible while covering the hard costs of hosting the Forum. Special rates are available to ICLEI and BARC members, sponsors, and speakers. Please visit our Registration page or contact us to learn more or join our email list to receive the latest LCF updates. 

Will I receive a receipt?

You will receive a confirmation email (which includes a payment receipt) once you register. Please be sure to check your spam folder as the emails may have been sent there. If you have not received these emails within 24 hours, please email us at lcf@iclei.org.

Can I register on the behalf of someone else?

You can fill out the registration form with the information of the person who will be attending the Forum. Note that the confirmation email (which inlcudes the payment receipt) and all future Forum communications will be sent to the email address entered in the registration form.

Are refunds available?

Cancellations before August 21, 2023 will receive a 50% refund. No refunds are available after August 21, 2023.

Will there be options for virtual participation?

LCF sessions are uniquely designed to include interactive and engaging workshops, trainings, discussion forums, and many networking and hands-on learning opportunities. Sessions are designed to allow participants extensive time to interact and dialogue with one another and will not be streamed online. Beyond the Forum, ICLEI Canada will continue to provide opportunities for practitioners from across the country to come together through free virtual workshops and webinars.  Please join our email list to receive information on future virtual and hybrid events.

Will this be a bilingual event?

We are pleased to include several French elements woven throughout the LCF experience including simultaneous translation of plenaries and select sessions. Stay tuned for more information. Join our email list to receive the latest LCF updates.

Who will be speaking at the event?

LCF offers perspectives from more than 80 speakers, facilitators, workshop hosts, and panelists from across Canada. We are working hard to convene diverse speakers who can share stories, innovative ideas, and lessons learned on the program themes and engage in thoughtful, valuable dialogue with delegates. Stay tuned for speaker announcements. Join our email list to receive the latest LCF updates.

Can I speak at the event or make a recommendation for a speaker?
