Preparing for this weekend ...

In a few days, we will all be gathering at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre for our annual CFAN workshop! Thank you so much for registering; we are very excited about this year's agenda

We also want to take this opportunity to invite you to a networking meeting and dinner the night before the CFAN workshop. On Saturday, October 19, we will be meeting at the Hotel InterContinental Toronto Centre (225 Front Street West) at 5:30pm. We have also reserved tables at Canyon Creek Front Street (156 Front St West) at 7:30pm. If you would like to come to either (or hopefully both!) of these, please email to be added to the list. We have limited space so please respond as soon as possible.

If you are driving to the workshop on Sunday, there is parking at the MTCC which costs $22.00 for the day. There is also a Green P parking lot nearby at 40 York Street; it costs $7.00 to park for 12 hours. Please be advised that, due to a marathon happening downtown that day, there will be some road closures. The marathon website suggests some good alternate routes

If you are taking transit, please be advised that the subway doesn't open until 9am. Bus and streetcar routes will be running. You can use the trip planner at to plan your route

If you are staying at the Hotel InterContinental Toronto Centre, the hotel has useful information about airport transfers and driving directions on its website. It's especially useful to know that, if you're coming via the island airport, there is a complimentary shuttle that stops just a block away. 

And finally, if you haven't yet registered for our post-workshop social event, please do! We are so grateful to Holland Bloorview and Sick Kids for sponsoring this event, which will be steps away from the conference centre at The Ballroom, 145 John Street.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. We are so looking forward to seeing you all this weekend!
