Attending the Conference is as much about staying on top of IR best practices and changes within the capital market as it is about reconnecting with and meeting new IR professionals. Join 200 of your peers, from across Canada, and share your experiences and challenges so that you can learn from one another. CIRI's Annual Conference provides the inspiration, education and connections needed to grow and deliver a best-in-class IR program.

Day One
Sunday, June 9

City Spin Segway Tour

See Halifax by Segway! This guided city tour includes a glide along the beautiful and historic Halifax Waterfront. You will also go into the heart of Halifax to see some of downtown Halifax’s most popular sites, including the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Government House, The Old Burying Ground, St. Mary's Cathedral Basilica, Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, Argyle Street, Grand Parade Square and City Hall. The fee of $70 (plus tax) includes the two-hour tour and Segway training. Bring your camera to capture the photo opps!


Halifax Harbour Kayak Tour

Experience Halifax from a different perspective! From the grandeur of tall ships, cruise ships, architecture and art installations, your sea level journey will leave you in awe. In sharp contrast to the sights, smells & sounds on the vibrant waterfront, you’ll also discover a world below the boardwalk and piers where the Atlantic is teeming with marine life – only accessible by kayak. You will be amazed by the sheer number of starfish, mussels, periwinkles, sea urchins, crabs, the odd lollygagging lobster and more. We have occasional encounters with curious seals & sea otters who are enjoying lunch on this abundant marine life or just playing alongside us in the harbour. The fee of $77 (plus tax) includes outfitting and instruction plus 1.5 hours of paddling.


Peggy’s Cove Tour

Join your kilted guide who will introduce you to the delights of Halifax as you travel along the Lighthouse Route on to Peggy’s Cove, which has been an artists’ and explorers’ paradise for over 200 years. This village is located on the rugged Atlantic shoreline, standing on solid rock above the crashing surf and the coastline is famous for pirates, shipwrecks, and rum-running. You will see the weatherworn fishing shacks, colourful buoys and lobster traps still used by local fishermen, and awe-inspiring rock formations that have been carved out by the glaciers of the last Ice Age. The fee of $92 (plus tax) includes round-trip transportation, tour of Peggy’s Cove and a sit-down lunch in Peggy’s Cove to enjoy before returning to Halifax.
