Attention Team Captains / Team Managers:
Only one person can register the team ~ the team captain or another designated individual (i.e. team manager).  The individual who registers the team will be responsible for building the team roster online, etc. Please note below regarding online credit card payments.

In order to secure your team's registration, you will need the following information ready to complete the online registration process:

  1. Mastercard, Visa or cheque (Full payment must be made at time of registering your team).  If paying by credit card, the cardholder does not need to be yourself.  On the payment page, the system allows you to include the individual's name who is covering the cost of your team registration fee.  If paying by check, please make it payable to: Great White North Communications Ltd., and mail it to the GWN office at 49 Bathurst Street, Suite 101, Toronto, ON M5V 2P2. For early bird pricing, all cheques must be received within 3 weeks of registration date.
  2. Your valid email address.
  3. When you are ready to create your team online - this can be done upon registration or anytime afterwards - if you're a new team captain, you will need each team member's valid email address. 
  4. NEW FEATURE! Under “MY CREW”, team captains will be able to invite their past members as long as they were their team captain.  Click on the “Invite Crew from Past Events” to view and select this year’s crew roster list.

Registration Process, Crew Management System, Waivers

For ease of use and to help you through the online registration process step by step, along with information on the crew management system, please print off the following document: Registration Process and Crew Management Tool Info (pdf doc)

GWN Waivers:

Team Captains: 
Through the crew management system, you can invite (or cancel) your team members, which upon accepting the invite, they will register themselves and sign the waiver electronically. 

Upon accepting the invite from your team captain to join, you will be brought to the GWN website to create an account.  You will be able to review the terms, place a check mark in the box, which will then sign the waiver electronically, which in turn eliminates all paper waivers!

Note on Participants under 18:
Team Captains:

Please still add them to your team online, as this does act as your roster list. You can download the waiver (which is on your crew management page), print off copies and have them filled out and signed by their guardians.  Please mail, fax, or scan & email the waiver to the GWN Office.  The GWN team will cross-reference them with your team roster list, and GWN will sign the waiver (electronically) on their behalf.

Note on family members sharing an email address:
Team Captains:
Please register one of them with the one email address they have.  For the other family member(s), please use the member's phone number(s) in conjunction with our domain name: e.g. (We will receive the member's invitation).  This way, the participant’s name will be in the system as this also acts as your team's roster list. 

Please have the family member(s) send in their waiver to the GWN Office via mail, fax or scan & email.  GWN will then electronically sign the waiver on their behalf and accept membership on the team.
