Again in 2014, Get your taxi fare or driving mileage reimbursed by us for Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver:

  • If you are full-time students, and there are three of you sharing one cab coming from downtown Toronto for Toronto meeting, or downtown Montreal for Montreal meeting, please present yourself at the registration desk to have your full taxi fare covered. We will reimburse you with 2 times of the amount on the taxi receipt to cover your taxi ride back too.
  • If you are full-time students, and there are three of you sharing one car coming from long distance, such as Waterloo, Guelph, London, Windsor, Peterborough, Kingston etc for Toronto meeting, or Ottawa, Sherbrook, Quebec City etc for Montreal meeting, or Victoria, Nanaimo, Okanagan, etc for Vancouver meeting, please present yourself at the registraiton desk to have your mileage (back and forth) coverd by us.

New in 2014, we will cover your parking expenses in Vancouver:

  • Due to the central location of Vancouver hotel, there is the payment parking at the hotel. New in 2014: Come to the registration desk to get your parking voucher so we will be paying for your parking!
