PGCon - PostgreSQL Conference for Users and Developers

Join us for the 16th annual PGCon!

PGCon is an annual conference for users and developers of PostgreSQL, a leading relational database, which just happens to be open source. PGCon is the place to meet, discuss, build relationships, learn valuable insights, and generally chat about the work you are doing with PostgreSQL. If you want to learn why so many people are moving to PostgreSQL, PGCon will be the place to find out why. Whether you are a casual user or you've been working with PostgreSQL for years, PGCon will have something for you.


We are monitoring restrictions imposed upon travel and events with respect with COVID-19. While we hope that we can meet in person, circumstances can change quickly. We will be following the recommendations of local, provincial, and federal health organisations. For example, be prepared to wear a mask at all times within the conference if that is the recommendation. There will be zero tolerance for not following the guidelines. Sure, we are asking you to agree to things we don't know yet. We're reasonable. You're reasonable. We'll figure it out and we'll all be happy.


  • Tutorials: 24-25 May 2022 (Tue & Wed)
  • Unconference: 25 May 2022 (Wed)
  • Talks: 26-27 May 2022 (Thu-Fri)

Since 2014, the unconference has been a regular PGCon feature with mostly hacking topics, on the day before the talks begin. The content of the unconference will be determined, on the day, by the attendees. In past years, we saw heavy attendance by both developers and users of PostgreSQL.

Entering Canada as a Visitor

Several changes have been made in the last 5 years at the border, including Electronic Travel Authorization, COVID-related requirements, including the mandatory use of ArriveCAN. Please see our Travel page for more details.
