Accommodations and Travel


Accommodations in Ottawa
  • Since the conference is being held at the University of Ottawa, there are no formal accommodations for CHLA/ABSC 2019.
    This means you can choose where you would like to stay based on location, type of accommodations and price!

    No official conference hotel? No problem!

    The CHLA/ABSC 2019 Conference Planning Committee is excited to host you this June! The new conference model we chose does not rely on having all our events and accommodations in the same place. Our conference venue is the University of Ottawa, and we are not operating with an official hotel, which allows delegates to choose their own accommodations.
