PCCAT’s annual conference is an opportunity for individuals and organizations to further the goal of increasing student mobility across Canada. Participants from educational institutions, government, and provincial CATs gather to discuss related research, promising new initiatives, and successful best practices in support of transfer credit recognition to improve access to post-secondary education.
This year’s conference is in partnership with ARUCC. In working together, PCCAT facilitates the implementation of policies and practices to achieve these objectives.

VENUE & ACCOMODATIONS
PCCAT Conference sessions, meals and functions take place at the Sheraton on the Falls Hotel on June 24th and 25th, 2020. The hotel is located at 5875 Falls Avenue, Niagara Falls, ON.
A block of rooms has been set aside for PCCAT attendees under the ARUCC Conference block at the following rates:
CITYVIEW ROOM - $169 single/double per night (+ applicable taxes)
FALLSVIEW ROOM - $209 single/double per night (+ applicable taxes)
CUT-OFF-DATE: The cut-off date for booking a room is May 29th, 2020 at 5:00pm (EST). The room block may sell out prior to this date so you are encouraged to book early to secure a room. After this cut-off date/time, any available rooms will be offered at the prevailing rate of the day.
THE FINE PRINT: Please note that the online booking form linked below refers to “ARUCC Conference 2020” but all policies also apply to PCCAT bookings and the Resort Fee indicated will be waived for all PCCAT bookings as well. Offering PCCAT rooms as part of the larger ARUCC block allowed us to negotiate very favourable rates for both groups since both events overlap. Room rates are in CDN funds and are subject to a $2 per night Transient Accommodation Tax (TAT), and 5.9% Promotion Fee (PF). HST (13%) is applicable on the total rate.
All reservations must be guaranteed by credit card at time of booking, for one night’s room and taxes. Cancellation of your room booking will be accepted without penalty up to 72 hours prior to arrival. Any reservation cancelled within 72 hours will be charged one night’s room plus taxes.
Room rates include complimentary Wi-Fi (multiple devices), unlimited local and long-distance calls from your hotel room to anywhere in the USA or Canada, and 2 WeGo tickets (WeGo is a hop-on, hop-off bus system connecting hotels to major tourist attractions within Niagara Falls and Niagara Parks).
