2023 National Convention – June 15 update

The countdown to the 2023 USJE National Triennial Convention has started! In less than 32 days, USJE members from across Canada will gather in Whistler, BC for the 19th triennial Convention.

Before the start of the Convention, participants will receive two additional updates from National Office. The USJE communications team will ensure that relevant documents and important information are all communicated to you. These documents will be made available on the USJE website and on the USJE app as soon as they become available.

Once you have downloaded the USEJ app (Apple Android), make sure to check its content often. Remember, the 2023 Convention is entirely digitally supported. No printed material will be distributed. 

Use #USJE2023SESJ whenever referring to the Convention on social media platforms.


The 2023 USJE National Convention is a digitally supported event. No printed material will be distributed throughout the Convention so make sure you have your phone or device with you.

Download the USJE APP (Apple Android) to keep up with the schedule of events and proceedings of the 2023 USJE National Convention. The USJE app was launched last June and is being used at USJE events. It is the most reliable way to find information and stay aware of schedule changes or votes.

If you are downloading the app for the first time, make sure you search for the USJE-SESJ app.
You will need to login with your personal email address and reset the password in order to access the content.

Will you be taking the USJE shuttle back to Vancouver on Friday, July 21? Do you want to participate in the Escape! Whistler event on Wednesday, July 19?

Please complete the following form with all the details.

Theme Nights & Attire

There will be 2 themed nights during Convention! On Monday, July 17th, the night prior to the start of the Convention, please join us for the Deep Blue Sea night. Come as a fish, an octopus or a pirate!

On Thursday, July 20th, the gala evening will be held. The theme is Enchanted Forest and the suggested attire is semi-formal.

Please make sure you dress comfortably for Convention. Remember that the temperature in large hotel halls can be difficult to adjust to please everyone. Please make sure you wear layers so you can adapt.

Also, the fresh mountain air in Whistler makes for chilly nights. Please pack accordingly.

Tourism in Whistler

No tourist activities or cultural outings in Whistler are part of the Convention schedule. Participants must plan and organize their own activities. Please visit whistler.com for information on Whistler and the surrounding area.

If you should have any concerns and you are uncertain about any of the instructions, please do not hesitate to contact the USJE Convention Team so we can help you.
