Sault Ste. Marie hosted the very first heritage conference in 1988 and thirty years later they’re hosting it again. A great opportunity to re-visit this wonderful region!
The local organizing committee has been planning the event for several years now, with a view to showing off their region’s considerable heritage assets. The program is shaping up to allow the attendees to visit local heritage sites and venues; among them the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre, the Heritage Discovery Centre, and the Algoma Conservation Building. The social program and tours offered during the conference and on Sunday will provide choices to explore the sites and the history. This beautiful area is a gateway to the canal, and is surrounded by natural beauty.
The main venue will be the Delta Sault Ste. Marie Waterfront Hotel and Conference Centre. Group rates will range from $139 for a Delta room to $159 for a Deluxe room offering a waterfront superior view. For budgeting purposes, flights from Toronto to Sault Ste. Marie are less than $300.
