Registration opened on October 15, 2018 and sold out in 13 minutes – a new record, and a phenomenal show of support for the event –followed by the waitlist filling up shortly after. GOV has grown immensely and continues to grow with the support of the delegates, volunteers, chaperones, facilitators, exhibitors and host communities. This overwhelming response of support serves to reinforce the need for a provincial forum where Indigenous youth can come together to being to make positive changes in their lives and in their communities. We raise our hands and thank you for your continued support as we grow together.

Those wait-listed will be noticed of any vacancies, should they arise, by February 1, 2019.

All registered must ensure to read the Code of Conduct, the Chaperone Guidelines as well as the Agenda. We also recommend booking Accommodations as soon as possible.

Please note that all attendees +18 years old and over must provide a recent CRC-VSC in order to be onsite at GOV.
