In alignment with BCCIE’s commitment to environmental sustainability at our in-person events, we encourage you to consider your chosen method of transportation to Vancouver and how it impacts your carbon footprint. Where possible, avoid air-travel and instead opt to carpool, walk-on the ferry, or take public transportation.
