We are back! Nelson 2022 Convention

Nelson 2022

Nelson, British Columbia — September 17-21, 2022

We are very excited to announce that the Nelson convention will go ahead - but in 2022 in conjunction with the GNRHS schedule. Your response to the event was so positive that the CPHA Executive decided it was too good an opportunity to pass up!

More information will be announced in the coming months.

Nelson is located in southern British Columbia along the CPR "southern main line", and was home to CPR divisional offices and a major yard for many years. At milepost 0.0 of the Boundary Subdivision, situated on the west arm of Kootenay Lake and on highway #3, Nelson is centrally located in the Boundary/Kootenay area of B.C.

We are extremely pleased to report that noted author and historian Robert D. Turner will be joining us as the banquet keynote speaker and guide for the K&S circle prototype tour. The program will also include:

With so much to enjoy, we are confident this convention will provide a great time for our members.
