Workshops and guestrooms are filled on a first-come, first served basis. Upon payment and receipt of your registration, a confirmation letter will be sent to you (or download here). Should you need to cancel your registration, your fee, with the exception of $45 USD/$55 CAD, will be refunded to you through May 15, 2018. No refunds will be possible after this date. While registration fees are not refundable after May 15, 2018, the fee may be applied to another counselor’s registration until July 10, 2018. The ministry reserves the right to not accept a registration for reasons it deems appropriate.

For any CITs who need to cancel, half off registrations can be directly transferred to another CIT. If you cannot find a CIT to transfer the registration, it can be transferred to another counselor or friend. The half off registration will not apply to a non-CIT registration. The full registration difference will need to be paid to the ministry. Please contact to make this arrangement.

Check payments must be postmarked within 10 days for US and 14 days for Canada registrations of the registration date. Please include a printout of the registration invoice (not the confirmation) with your check or money order.
