CIQS Congress 2022

Everyone at CIQS is excited to invite you to join us in June for our first in-person Congress since 2019!

Non-Member: Congress registration: $800 | Congress registration plus Chair's dinner: $965 | Chair's dinner only: $165

We also recommend that you book a hotel room at The Westin Ottawa early as we expect our special CIQS priced room block to sell out fast. Click here to take advantage of our special room price starting at $249 per night!  ROOM BLOCK DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL MAY 24, 2022!

We have also partnered with Via Rail to offer our delegates a 10% discount for travel to Ottawa between the dates of June 13th  to June 21st  2022. Participants must reference the event’s VIA convention discount code: 14242. Click here for more information!

 Although we are taking care to include some exciting networking events, the main focus of our annual Congress is education.  It will feature two full days of technical education, which will qualify for CPD points for our PQS and CEC members who all need to acquire 50 CPD points per year to maintain their designations.   Coming together in person offers attendees the opportunity to not only gain valuable knowledge from industry experts during the technical presentations, but also a chance to speak with them throughout the event.

The CIQS Congress committee and board of directors always have the safety of its staff and Congress delegates top of mind.  We are monitoring the federal and provincial government, and local health unit regulations to ensure that we can meet in-person in Ottawa in June as safely as possible. CIQS Congress delegates, speakers and staff must adhere to Ontario COVID guidelines in place, if any, at the time of the event. 

We hope to see you all in our national capital in June 2022!
