Travel

CICan is committed to significantly reducing the climate and other environmental impacts of its annual conference, the majority of which are travel related. To support us in this effort, we encourage you to consider these sustainable travel options. See how CICan is working to green its annual conference.

Travel to/from Calgary

  • If flying, reduce your emissions by choosing direct flights when possible (multiple shorter flights and layovers are much more polluting) and minimize your luggage (the heavier the plane, the more fuel it burns).
  • Purchase carbon credits from a reputable source to offset the emissions produced by your flights. If your institution does not provide for this, consider the Great Bear Rainforest Carbon Project, which comes recommended by our conference co-host Bow Valley College.
  • If you’re travelling from Alberta, Saskatchewan, and BC, consider lower-emission travel modes including inter-city bus and carpooling.
  • Frequent bus rapid transit service is available between Calgary International Airport and downtown.

Travel within Calgary

Choose sustainable options including walking (don’t miss Calgary’s famous Plus 15 Skywalk), e-Scooters and e-Bikes, Calgary Transit (including a downtown free fare zone on the wind-powered C-Train) and ride-sharing.
