2024 AISES in Canada National Gathering

February 29 to March 2, 2024 | Hyatt Regency Vancouver, BC

Safe Camp and Code of Conduct

All conference participants are expected to adhere to the AISES Code of Conduct. 


The AISES events and activities are a “Safe Camp,” meaning they are a welcoming, inclusive, supportive, and safe environment for all our AISES family members regardless of race, color, sex, religion, sexual orientation, or gender expression/identity. Safe Camp includes recognizing the AISES Code of Conduct and anyone found violating the code will be asked to leave the event or activity immediately. Please contact any AISES staff member or board member if you have any questions.


AISES was established with the goal of developing Indigenous professionals and leaders in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math. Considering this goal, the first student leaders of AISES developed a set of principles that prohibited alcohol, illegal drugs, and harassment. These principles have become core values of the organization and are incorporated as the Code of Conduct.

The AISES Code of Conduct promotes professional development and personal growth by strictly prohibiting the use of intoxicating drugs or alcohol, all forms of harassment and discrimination, and encourages respectful and civil dialog and group discussions. The Code is meant to reflect the ideals of our Indigenous communities by establishing an expectation that we agree to protect and promote the well-being and growth of all people.

The Code is expected to be honored when individuals are representing the AISES organization and by all persons participating in AISES activities, events, and conversations. To this end, each person is asked to consider the spirit of the Code and promote its intent by refraining from prohibited activities and encouraging others to do the same.

AISES will continue to maintain the Code of Conduct as a symbol reflective of the teachings and values of our ancestors. The Code of Conduct represents the ideas and visions set-forth by the AISES founders and the student leadership. AISES values and respects the rights and privileges of others and asks that you honor the AISES organization, its mission, and the family of AISES by adhering to the Code of Conduct.

Attendees from all over Canada and the United States are expected to attend the three-day event.

This year's registration rates are $89 CAD (approximately $65 US) for students and $179 CAD (approximately $130 US) for professionals.
