  • Accomodations & Travel


    The SOGC has negotiated group rates for SOGC and GOC conference participants at the Hilton Quebec, just steps away from the Old Town! Last year in Niagara the conference hotels sold out well in advance of the event, so book early to get a room with a view.

    “The Hilton Quebec City hotel is the perfect base for exploring the heritage and charm of Canada’s oldest city. Located on Parliament Hill, Hilton Quebec is just a 20-minute drive to Quebec International Airport and five minutes from the train and bus stations.” The Hilton is just steps from the Old Town and other major attractions and festivals.

    Reserve by Thursday, April 30, 2015 to secure your room at the group rate. (A limited number of rooms have been reserved for the GOC and the SOGC and the block may sell out before that date).

    CANCELLATION POLICY: Please note that individuals cancelling their reservations less than 72 hours prior to the arrival date will be subject to a cancellation penalty equal to one night’s room and tax.
