FamilyLife Weekend Getaway marriage conference - Banff, AB

Lake Louise, AB April 17-19, 2020

Cancellation Notice

Dear registered guests,

Thank you for your patience and understanding as circumstances continue to evolve rapidly. We care about your marriage and have so much been looking forward to hosting you at the Weekend Getaway at Lake Louise. Due to the present health crisis, however, we’ve had to make the decision to cancel the event. Your health and safety is of utmost importance to us, which is why we’ve been following Canada’s public health directives closely. As you know, each of us as citizens are being asked to make sacrifices to implement social distancing to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect our more vulnerable neighbours. It is our prayer that in the coming weeks and months, you will grow closer as a family and as a couple through these uncertain times. 

We are in discussions with the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise about possibly rescheduling this conference to next spring, and we will let you know as soon as a decision has been reached. All registrants will maintain a full credit towards the next conference in the region, or any future Weekend Getaway anywhere in Canada. Your credit will not expire. If you prefer to receive a refund, we will provide that to you in full and will waive the usual $30 cancellation fee.

You will receive an email soon with a form to indicate which option you prefer. In addition, please call the hotel soon to confirm your room booking cancellation.

Fairmont Lake Louise Front Desk:

If you have any questions at all, please email events@familylifecanada.com or call 1-800-247-3180. Please know that you are in our prayers. We look forward to hosting you at a Weekend Getaway in the future. 

With love and concern,

FamilyLife Canada
