The MEIA has been chosen to host the Invasive Species Centre’s 19th International Conference on Aquatic Invasive Species to be held at the Fort Garry Hotel, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, April 10-14, 2016.

This conference series is widely considered the most comprehensive international forum on aquatic invasive species and continues to evolve to address new and emerging issues.

Sessions and presentations include the review of accumulated scientific knowledge; presentation of the latest field research; introduction of new technological developments for prevention, monitoring and control; discussion of policy and legislation; and mechanisms to raise awareness with the general public through education and outreach initiatives.

In recent years the conference has typically involved more than 400 participants from over 30 countries, representing academia, industry, government agencies, NGOs and other stakeholders involved in the issues. Many are seeking opportunities for international cooperation and collaboration to address AIS issues from a global perspective.
