Transportation Information

Toronto Welcomes the CAS

Toronto is served by two local airports:

The Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel is located approximately 3 miles/5 kilometers from the smaller Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, which is often referred to as the Toronto Island Airport, (YTZ). A one-way taxicab fare from this airport to the hotel is around $20 CAD.

The larger local airport is Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and the hotel is approximately 17 miles/28 kilometers away. From Pearson, attendees may either find a taxicab for a one-way fare to the hotel around $60 CAD, or take the train. The Union Pearson Express train (UP Express) provides transportation between Pearson International Airport and Union Station in Downtown Toronto every 15 minutes and 7 days a week. It is approximately a 25 minute train ride and 10 minute walk to the hotel from Union Station. UP Express fees are per person one-way: Adult 12 CAD, Senior 6 CAD, Family 25 CAD and Children Free (12 and under). Prices are subject to change and are at the discretion of Metrolinx. For more information please visit www.upexpress.com.

Toronto is served by a subway system called the TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) and the hotel is conveniently located two blocks away from both Queen and Osgoode subway stations. System maps and fares may be found on TTC’s web page: http://ttc.ca/index.jsp.

Valet parking is available at the hotel for $50 CAD/day, while public parking may be found directly across Queen Street at City Hall. Taxis and limousine services are readily available.

Important Information Regarding Official Spring Meeting Hotel

The Casualty Actuarial Society is able to conduct high-quality meetings at desirable sites for a reasonable registration fee because a block of hotel rooms is reserved for meeting attendees. In exchange for filling the required number of sleeping rooms, the CAS is permitted to use the hotel’s meeting space at no cost, thus keeping registration fees low. In addition, meeting attendees receive a reduced rate for their sleeping rooms. We kindly request that all meeting attendees take advantage of the group rate and stay at the official Spring Meeting property, Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel.
