Hotel Information

If you are staying in Steinbach on October 2nd to 3rd, please book your hotel room as soon as possible. The hotel we are staying at is the Roadhouse 52 –https://roadhouse52.ca/

Before you book your room, please take the following information into account. Rooms for the MRF2FG can only be booked by calling or emailing and using the Conference Rate.

One more thought to take into account, if you have several staff coming, you can book rooms that comfortably accommodate up to six (6) people comfortably. So please ask about larger rooms if you have more than 2 people staying in a room. You will still receive a discounted rate for different sizes of rooms and overall it will save expenses for MANSO, IRCC and your organization.
