Hotel and travel

The conference will be taking place at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel. The address is:

Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel
123 Queen Street West
Toronto, ON M5H 3M9

As the designated conference hotel, the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel has reserved a block of rooms for delegates. The special room rate for the conference is $211 plus taxes per night for a standard room or double room. The special rate is only available until 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28, or until the room block has been filled. You may still make a reservation after Oct. 28 but room rates will vary and are subject to availability.

Please book your rooms in advance. If you are booking on behalf of a group, please ensure you assign a guest’s name to the room and only reserve the amount you need. Unlike last year, the hotel will not be creating sub-blocks for colleges to hold rooms. Therefore, the colleges will have to book directly into the main block on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Please note: If you sign up for the Starwood Preferred Guest club and make your reservation using your club member number, you could receive benefits such as express check-in and checkout and complimentary Wifi access. There is no fee to enrol in this program. Visit for more information.
