Travel

International Travel Information

For attendees from the United States, a valid passport is needed for air travel to enter Canada and re-enter the United States.  A passport, passport card, NEXUS card, or other approved travel document is needed for travel by land. It is generally recommended to renew your passport if it expires within six months of your travel.

Attendees planning on making international calls may wish to contact their cell phone service provider to make arrangements for an international plan, otherwise it is recommended to place the phone in airplane mode (turn data off) to avoid roaming charges. Free wifi is available at Billy Bishop Airport, Toronto Pearson International Airport, and the Courtyard Toronto Downtown, which may be helpful for making ground transportation arrangements.

Transportation

For travel purposes, the Institute begins at 8:00am on Wednesday 10 July and ends at 1:00pm on Friday, 12 July 2019. We suggest that attendees book flights arriving in Toronto on Tuesday and book flights that depart Toronto after 3:30pm on Tuesday.

The Billy Bishop Airport (YTZ), commonly known as the Toronto Island Airport, is located just offshore the heart of Toronto and is serviced by Air Canada Express (departures from select airports in Canada), FlyGTA Airlines (departures from select airports in Canada), and Porter Airlines (departures from select airports in Canada and the United States). To travel the short distance between the island and the mainland, use the airport’s ferry (departs every 15 minutes) or use the pedestrian tunnel.

Ground transportation options from Billy Bishop Airport, located on the mainland, just outside the ferry terminal include:

  • The Billy Bishop Airport providing a free Airport Shuttle Bus to Union Station in downtown Toronto. The shuttle ride takes about 15 minutes. At Union Station a Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) train can be boarded going northbound toward Finch for four stops, getting off at College Street, just three minutes from the Courtyard Toronto Downtown. Trains leave every 4 minutes and one-way tickets are $3.25. In total, taking the Airport Shuttle Bus and the TTC train would take about 25 minutes.

  • Taxi, Uber, and Lyft rideshares: An Uber or Lyft from the airport to the Courtyard Toronto Downtown will cost $12-16 CAD (depending on time of day, traffic, and other factors). A taxi will cost around $20 CAD.

The Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) is located in Mississauga, part of the Greater Toronto Area and is serviced by most major airlines. The airport is about 25 minutes from downtown Toronto with no traffic and up to 90 minutes with traffic so it is important to plan accordingly for ground transportation.

Ground transportation options from the Toronto Pearson International Airport include:

  • Union Pearson (UP) Express air-rail providing transportation from Toronto Pearson International Airport to Union Station in downtown Toronto.  Trains leave every 15 minutes and one-way tickets are $12.35 CAD. At Union Station a Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) train can be boarded going northbound toward Finch for four stops, getting off at College Street, just three minutes from the Courtyard Toronto Downtown. Trains leave every 4 minutes and one-way tickets are $3.25. In total, taking the UP Express and the TTC train would take about 40 minutes.

  • Taxi, Uber, and Lyft rideshares:  An Uber or Lyft from the airport to the Courtyard Toronto Downtown will cost $40-50 CAD (depending on time of day, traffic, and other factors).  A taxi may cost $60 CAD or more.
