Conference 2023

Join us this October 25-28 in historic downtown St. John’s for Municipalities Newfoundland and Labrador’s 2023 Conference, Trade Show and AGM: Toward a Sustainable Future.  

This year’s event includes workshops, information sessions, discussions, networking, live music, the return of the world café, a trade show so big it gets its own street map, and more.  

We’ll be recognizing our longest-serving members at the evening gala, where the Department of Municipal and Provincial Affairs will present its Long Service Awards.  

Municipal council delegates are eligible for the Municipal Training Financial Assistance program offered through Municipal and Provincial Affairs. Download the funding application form here.


The conference agenda can be found here. Please note, the agenda is still being updated and added to. A complete agenda will be made available to all conference attendees the week of the event.
