Accommodations in Nanaimo

AVICC has set up accommodation blocks at preferred rates with the two hotels closest to the Vancouver Island Conference Centre. We ask that members do not reserve more rooms than they expect to use. There are financial penalties for AVICC, and therefore for our members, if there are last-minute cancellations and the blocks are not filled. Both hotels will be charging a one night non-refundable deposit for each room booked.

Reserve with the Coast Bastion by calling 1-800-663-1144 and quoting booking code CBI-GFC20953.  Room rates range from $147 to $250. This hotel provides free wifi and there is a charge for parking. Booking Link:

Sad news. Anne Fiddick, the former Mayor of the Village of Gold River and AVICC life member has recently passed. She served as Mayor from 1978 to 1996 and as Alderman from 1973 to 1978. She was designated a life member of AVICC (1981-82).
