Canadian Currency

The Canadian dollar is used in Canada. Most places take credit cards but it's a good idea to have some on hand for small purchases.

Toronto Weather

The days will see the temperature about 15°C (50’s in F) and evenings will drop to the low single digits (30’s in F). Be sure to bring a jacket for evenings. A bit of rain is likely.

Summit Venue

Delta Toronto
75 Lower Simcoe Street,
Toronto ON M5J 3A6

Printing Services

There will be no printing available at the event. If you require any printed materials, you might try The Printing House nearby or another print shop.

Travel between the airport and the hotel

Best option: Union Pearson Express The hotel is a 5 minute indoor walk from where the UP train drops you off at Union Station. You can buy a ticket beforehand online or at the station before you board. This is the fastest and most cost efficient route (just $12 CAD). You can board at Pearson in Terminal 1.

Other option: Taxi or limo service Like most international airports, there will be plenty of taxi and limos that can take you into the city. The cost is about $50 CAD each way and most cars are equipped with credit card machines but it’s a good idea to double check when you get in if you don’t have Canadian currency.


The TTC is the local transit system, and can get you pretty much anywhere in the city through a combination of buses, streetcars and subways. Drivers are helpful, and be sure to get a transfer when you board if you're paying with cash or tokens. You may also choose to purchase a presto card at Union station if you think you'll be taking multiple rides.


Food Toronto is an amazing food city, imagine a cuisine you'd like to try and you'll find multiple options, but you don't have to take my word for it: https://www.foodism.to/guest-column-david-mcmillan-love-letter-toronto/

Some higher end restaurants require reservations, most of which you can make online.
