Meet at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights


Take a taxi, or carpool to stunning Fort Whyte Alive, a 20 minute drive from the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. FortWhyte Alive is more than just a nature centre, wildlife refuge, or a place for education – their 640 acres of protected urban greenspace is an award-winning destination for incredible outdoor experiences.

Upon arrival, take part in a Canadian Tourism Commission Signature Experience, A Prairie Legacy: The Bison and its People.  Discover how the bison influenced the history of Manitoba and the lives of the people of the prairies. Experience a close-up encounter with 30 grunting, munching bison -- then, test your skills as you power a mighty Voyageur canoe. Explore a Plains Cree Tipi, step inside a one-room pioneer sod house, and savour wild bush tea and bannock over a campfire.

Enjoy a light lunch of soup, sandwich as well as a cookie and a drink at the onsite restaurant.

Enjoy the rest of your day at Fort Whyte Alive self-guided. Explore the south trails at your leisure, shop at the boutique, or visit the interpretive centre.

Note: if you are renting a vehicle for the week, and can drive to Fort Whyte, please let us know. This will assist us in keeping conference fees down. Transportation will be provided, via taxi.
