FAQs

Less than $500, plus taxes.

We have worked diligently to keep the registration fee below $500 so those travelling from across Canada and elsewhere have a world-class, yet affordable, experience.

Our ticket price is $580 but there are numerous discounts available, such as:

Fun & Food

We are working out the details.

Our plan is to ensure access to great food and excellent content throughout the event. Hotel accommodations and travel will not be included in the registration fee but we have negotiated with Hyatt Regency Toronto Hotel to get you the best possible price — remember to tell them you're with the Scrum gathering!

Every part of Canada is incredible! But...

A majority of Canadian Scrum Alliance® members live in Toronto.

The organizing committee and volunteer group includes members from across the country and we carefully considered the location of this event.

We can achieve 2 important objectives by hosting the event in Toronto this 1st year:

  • We can develop relationships with Canada's largest corporations who have national presence to secure sponsorships for this and (hopefully) future events.
  • We can explore ideas to strengthen the networks and raise awareness of Scrum in other Canadian communities.

We Want to Complement, Not Compete

With Toronto chosen as the location, we wanted to be careful not to compete with other events in the calendar. We tip our hat to the incredible success of:

  • Toronto Agile Community
  • Agile Coach Camp (East & West)
  • Play4Agile
  • Gatineau Ottawa Agile Tour

All of those great events occur between June & November and are organized by our hard-working friends & colleauges. Regional Scrum Gathering® Canada is scheduled to not conflict with those events. We intend to augment the calendar with additional learning opportunities for our growing community.

We love volunteers! We are volunteers too!

Volunteers are the heart of the event. It literally cannot happen without the help of an energetic community.

Volunteers are helping to organize the event and will be on-site during the event to ensure things run smoothly. We already have long list of people eager to help.  We have been blown away by the support from people like you.

We have closed the submission form. Instead, here are a few things you can do immediately to help the event:
