Site and Lodging
Where We'll Be
The site is situated in the beautiful surrounds of YMCA Geneva Park facility in Orillia, Ontario, Canada. This is situated a 90 minute drive from Toronto.
To travel from Pearson International Airport, you will need to take a shuttle. We have provided links to companies that offer door to door service from the airport in Toronto to the AGM site in Orillia:
If you are coming from downtown Toronto: You will need to go to the Bus Terminal on Bay St. and take a bus to Orillia. The bus does not stop at Geneva Park so you will need to take a taxi from the drop off point in Orillia to the Conference Centre. It is recommended to reserve your tickets in advance online or by phone with Greyhound Bus Lines.
