UBCM’s annual Convention provides a forum for local governments to identify common issues and engage with officials from other orders of government. Learning and networking are key components of each event and we encourage the respectful discussion of diverse points of view on the issues facing our province.

There is a cost to hosting a week-long event for close to 2,000 delegates. Keeping registration costs low enables greater participation by local elected officials from the across the province. We appreciate the generous support of our sponsors who help keep costs lower than they would be otherwise.
