You should make arrangements to arrive before 6pm on Sunday, May 8, 2010. Departure times should be no earlier than 6pm on Wednesday, May 12, 2010 as participants will be returning from the University of Western Ontario Campus in London, Ontario. London is a two hour drive from Toronto and the bus is scheduled to arrive at the airport no earlier than 4pm on Wednesday, May 12.

Can I drive to Toronto?

Absolutely! If you are within driving distance to Toronto, you are more than welcome to drive.

Do I need a passport?

Yes. A valid passport is required for travel to Canada, whether you are arriving by land or air.

I want to arrive early/stay late – is that possible?

If you would like to stay an extra night in Toronto you are more than welcome, however any additional cost for accommodation will be the responsibility of the tour participant. Should you require an additional night in residence, please connect with us directly to make these arrangements.

What are the ‘optional tours’?

Some of our Universities have multiple campus locations offering unique programs and diverse study environments for your students. Counsellors interested in visiting one or more of these locations, are encouraged to join the optional ‘add-on’ day which will allow you the opportunity to visit up to two additional campus locations. Accommodation costs for the “add-on” day will be assumed by the Universities.
