Registration Tips:

  • We recommend that each individual register for a conference or event on their own account. If this is not possible, group registration is available.
  • For group registrations, you will only be able to register for a maximum of 4 people in one transaction.  If you need to register more than 4 people, please contact us and we will assist you.
  • You will only be able to register for a conference/event once on your account (one transaction per conference/event).
  • If you are registering for a group of people, please ensure you have everyone's registration information ready.
  • During the registration process, DO NOT hit the "back" button or "refresh" button or you will lose all the information that you have inputted into the form.
  • If you are creating a new profile for a registrant, during the registration process, please ensure you include their email address, so we may send relevant event / conference information directly to the registrant.
  • During checkout, do not hit the "back" button or "refresh" button.

Getting started:

I want to register for an event. Do I need an account?

In order to register for an event, you need to have an active account on the BCRPA website.

To create or activate an account, visit the Login page. Select the link "Create or activate my account now" and follow the instructions.

How do I get the Member discount?

Membership discounts are applied automatically to eligible accounts.

Please ensure your employer is listed correctly in your profile. If you are not sure how your employer is listed, start typing in the name of the city (e.g. "Burnaby", not "City of Burnaby"). Select the name of the municipality or regional district that has the name of the local government only (should not say "City of" or "Village of" and should not be an acronym such as RDCO).
