Built on the original Pier B-C on Vancouver's Waterfront, the Vancouver Convention Centre first served as the Canada Pavilion for the World's Fair Expo in 1986. Since then, it has grown to become recognized as one of the leading convention centres in the world. It is a well-known icon and is easily reached via the Seabus from the North Shore, skytrain, bus and by car.
Vancouver is serviced by the Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and is 20-30 minutes from Downtown. Taxis and limousines cost approximately CAD$40. The Canada Line train goes from the airport terminal to downtown in 27 minutes for $8.
The Montreal Convention is a state-of-the-art modern facility, centrally located in the middle of the downtown core. Since 1983 the centre has held over 4,800 events and hosted almost 14m visitors, and its location and easy access make it an ideal venue for a student fair. The centre is easy to reach by car (there is paid parking nearby) and the Metro station Place d’Armes is linked to the centre.
Montreal is serviced by the Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport and is located approximately 20 kms from downtown. The fixed cost for a taxi from the airport to downtown is $40, and you can pick up a taxi from the Arrivals level near the central exit (a dispatcher will be there to help you).
Located right downtown, the Convention Centre is easily accessible to visitors via public transport and by car. The North Building is between the InterContinental Toronto Centre and the CN Tower/Rogers Centre and has three entrances: the main doors on Front Street, via the Skywalk (the glass-enclosed walkway connection to mass transit), and the Centre's own weather-protected internal street.
Toronto’s main airport is Lester Pearson International Aiport, which is about 45 minutes from downtown by taxi ($50-$60), or 25 minutes by the UP Express Train ($12). The UP Express goes into Union Station, which is a couple of blocks from the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
