2016 - CAES & WAEA Joint Annual Meeting

When: June 21-24, 2016
Where: Hotel Grand Pacific, Victoria, BC

The CAES is excited to partner with our friends and colleagues from the Western Agricultural Economics Association (WAEA) in 2016. Our last joint venture in 2011 in Banff was a resounding success, and as you can see from the schedule below, a joint meeting in Victoria should prove to be even better. The meetings will kick off on June 21st with a preconference workshop, keynote address, and welcome reception, followed by two full days of fully joint sessions, separate plenary and annual awards banquets, and educational and entertaining excursions.

The Hotel Grand Pacific is a full 5-star hotel on Victoria's scenic Inner Harbour, next to the landmark BC Legislature and Parliament Buildings, and two blocks from Victoria’s downtown restaurant and shopping district, five blocks from Fisherman’s Wharf—a working harbor surrounded by an array of casual food counters, unique shops, and water adventures including kayaking and whale watching. It offers a stunning view from every room, full athletic and spa facilities and access to Victoria’s many tourist destinations.
