This is a unique meeting space located in the Agri-Trade side of the show grounds. If you are unsure how to get here, please ask your IBC staff and volunteers! They will be happy to show you where this space is.
For anyone arriving to the show grounds prior to Tuesday, November 29, you will gain access to the grounds free without having to show any accreditation, courtesy of CWA’s partner, CN. Arriving on Tuesday or later, you will receive an email from email@example.com with a complimentary gate pass for #CWA2023.
The ticket can be downloaded to your phone or printed prior to travelling to the show. Upon arrival, present the e-Pass to the gate attendant to scan for entry. What’s next? Head up to the International Business Centre (IBC) to pick up your registration package, which contains your 2023 Visitor’s Badge. This badge will be your multi-use gate pass for the duration of your visit to #CWA2023.
If you used the same email address to register more than one guest, you will receive a separate e-Pass email for each guest registered.
Each e-Pass contains a unique barcode that is validated when scanned at the gate. Once scanned, the barcode immediately becomes invalid for any subsequent entries. So, it’s important to stop by the IBC when you arrive at the show.

Passports & Travel Visas
All visitors to Canada require a valid passport, including US citizens. Visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to a Canadian airport require an Electronic Travel Authorization form (except US citizens). US citizens can visit Canada with just a passport. Please familiarize yourself with the laws and customs of Canada and the rules surrounding what items may be brought into Canada.
The official currency in Canada is the Canadian Dollars, which can be divided into 100 cents (¢). Denominations of currency are in 5¢, 10¢, 25¢, $1, and $2 coins and $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 bills. $1 coins are affectionately referred to as loonies and $2 coins as toonies. The 1¢ penny was discontinued in 2012 with all transactions now rounded off to the nearest 5¢. NO other currency (including USD) is accepted in Canada. Foreign debit and credit cards can be used.
Most businesses accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Banks and currency exchange offices are available throughout Regina. For daily currency exchange rates visit here.
Sales Tax & Tipping
A Provincial Sales Tax (PST) of 6% is applicable in the Province of Saskatchewan. This applies to the purchase or rental of taxable goods and services for consumption or use in Saskatchewan. In addition, there is also a federal Goods & Services Tax (GST) of 5% which is charged on most goods and services purchased in Canada.
Tipping in Canada is much the same as in the USA. It is not mandatory but a tip of 15% – 20% is generally expected for restaurants and taxis. A small tip ($5-$10) is also generally expected for bellhop service and cleaning staff at your hotel.
