Upper Canada College is easily accessible via Pearson International Airport, Union Station (rail), the central bus terminal and by private car. Local public transit is fast, safe and efficient.

Transportation to Toronto and accommodation during the conference is the responsibility of participants. UCC’s IB Teacher Conference provides a list of recommended accommodations and transportation between those hotels and the conference. Participants staying at alternative locations must provide their own transportation to UCC.

Toronto is served by two airports: Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ). Participants must arrange their own transportation from the airport to the hotel via public transit, airport shuttle or taxi.

Here is a link to information about our new train from the airport. The train is easier than taking our TTC (public transit) and very affordable.
