There is a weekend-gap (3 days) between the two conferences. This would give you the opportunity to travel between Montreal to Toronto, from the research presentations at McGill University to those at Ryerson University.
You are responsible for booking this transport. While the educational and cultural bus tours are included in the registration fee, the transport between Montreal and Toronto is not.
Your lowest cost of traveling between the two cities would likely be on a bus. You may reserve a ticket in advance through the Megasbus website where the prices are quoted in Canadian dollars. Expected cost would be around CAN$50 and the stops along the way would be minimal, about four. The bus departs from Montreal every 30 minutes and the duration of the journey would be about six hours.
The train may not cost you much more than the bus and may shave off about one hour from the duration of a bus journey. Cheapest train tickets are on Saturday and Sunday and this is why we have included the weekend gap in the program. You may book a ticket in advance using the Wanderu website.
The flight would be from Montreal (YMQ) to Toronto (YTO). "YMQ" includes all airports in Montreal and "YTO" includes all airports in Toronto. This would include smaller airports that are usually ignored in international travel. You may buy the airline ticket through any travel website, such as the Kayak website. Again, you may be surprised by the availability of low cost tickets.
