This year PyCon Canada is taking place 12-15 November 2016 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the The Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University.

Getting to Toronto

Toronto has 2 major airports. Toronto Pearson is the international airport and is the location for almost all the major domestic and international airlines. It's about a 35 minute drive from Toronto Pearson to the University of Toronto, but be aware that downtown Toronto traffic is busy all day and is particularly busy during peak rush hour. Allow at least an hour for travel time from the airport. The Union Pearson Express train is also an good option to get downtown from Pearson.

VIA Rail is offering a 10% discount for PyCon Canada 2016 attendees travelling to Toronto between November 8th to 17th. Use the conference discount code: 13389.
