Since 2015, we have given more than 125 conferences in a variety of contexts: elementary and secondary schools, CEGEPs, universities, clubs, seniors’ centres, private corporations, government departments and the general public. Each time, the sparkle and interest in people’s eyes remind us that the social benefits of our expeditions alone are worth all the effort we put into accomplish extreme sporting achievements.

The AKOR expedition crew is excited to invite you to its FIRST public lecture! Barely a month after our return, you will have the opportunity to hear for the first time the story of this unprecedented journey, never before attempted. Transformed humans, with eyes still sparkling, will tell you the tale of this improbable story, with emotions, humor and spectacular images of some of the most remote regions on Earth.

Tickets are on sale for $30 + taxes via a secure platform.

Admission is general, upon presentation of immunization passport. Doors will open at 6:30 pm and the conference will start at 7:30 pm. It will last approximately 2 hours, including a short intermission.

The wonderful team of the Happy Yak company will be present on site to offer their delicious freeze-dried food, which the members of the expedition enjoyed for over 100 days!

The Stadaconé distillery, based in Limoilou, will also be on site to serve their tasty beers, cocktails and novelties!

The evening will even be spiced up with a silent auction where you can bid on the 2 canoes that were used for the expedition! They are Esquif 16” Prospectors. They are very worn, but are perfect for calm water paddling. Who will have the chance to own the AKOR expedition canoes, full of history, which have seen some of the most majestic landscapes of Nunavut in the world!

The crew will stay on hand to chat with you until all questions are answered!

The generation of tomorrow faces unprecedented challenges. Tackling and adapting to climate change is one of them, and young people need hope, ambition and confidence in their role as agents of change more than ever.

We are committed to setting an example, one conference at a time.
