Location/Travel

Travel to Canada
Please check the Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s website for visa requirements before you arrange your travel. Most people need a visa OR an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to travel to Canada.

About Victoria
Victoria has an international airport (YYJ), and can be reached by ferry and floatplane from Vancouver and Seattle. (There are also ferry routes to Port Angeles and other destinations).
August is a very busy tourist season in Victoria so delegates are encouraged to book hotels early to ensure reasonable pricing and availability. We have reserved a limited room block at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Victoria Ocean Pointe, with early-bird pricing ending 1 March 2022, and final deadline 29 May 2022.

About University of Victoria
UVic is 7 km from downtown. With a bus exchange located on campus, it is conveniently served by many routes. More details can be found here
