How to Register

If you would like to register for a program you can do it anytime online or call the office team at 902-657-2231 or toll free 1-800-218-2220.

Program Registration and Cancellation Policy

At registration you can pay the full program cost or only the registration deposit. The registration deposit is non refundable or transferable. The residual program cost is due two weeks prior to the program date and is also non refundable. Please register early. All registrations should be received no later than two weeks before program start. This gives us a chance to schedule staff, assign rooms and most importantly know if the program can go ahead. If Tatamagouche Centre has to cancel a program due to low registration any amount paid for the program will be refunded, except for those who have cancelled prior on their own accord.

Program Cost

Unless otherwise stated, our program rates include meals and accommodations, based on double occupancy. The tuition is the cost that occurs for the facilitators honorarium and travel expenses. If you wish to camp or sleep off-site, your rate will be adjusted; just let the Registrar know. There will be no refund for meals that are not taken at the Centre.

Meals and Accommodations

All prices are based on double occupancy. Private rooms may be available for an additional fee of $25 per night. Click here to see our 5 residences.

Providing healthy nutritious meals is part of our hospitality. We can accommodate the following dietary restrictions: vegetarian, vegan, no pork, celiac (gluten free), lactose intolerance, peanut and shellfish allergies. Individuals with more specialized diets may supplement their meals at the Centre with their own food from home. Please make sure to tell us about any dietary restrictions before you arrive.

Arrival & Departure

Evening programs begin at 7pm sharp. Registration begins at 4pm, and supper is served at 5:30pm. Rooms are available after 4pm, so come early and settle in to the beautiful surroundings before your program begins.
