A block of rooms at a preferred rate has been set aside for participants, at the hotel Le St-Martin Hôtel Particulier. The hotel is at a 10-minute walk, or two subway stations, from the location of the workshop.

Most goods and services in Quebec are subject to two taxes, a federal Goods and Services Tax of 5% (usually listed as TPS or GST on receipts – Taxe sur les produits et services / Goods and Services Tax) and a provincial sales tax of 9.975% (TVQ or QST on receipts – Taxe de vente du Québec / Québec Sales Tax). There is also a lodging tax for hotels, of 3.5% in Montréal. These taxes are usually not included in the prices displayed and are added at the time of payment.
