Travel from the Airport
Montreal's Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport is west of the city center on Highway 20. Please note that travel time to the airport from the city center can be as much as an hour, depending on traffic. The airport is served by all major Canadian and U.S. airlines. The taxi fare to and from downtown is a fixed price of C$38 (a sticker on the window behind the driver gives the boundaries of the zone where the flat fare applies; for origins and destinations outside this zone, you will have to pay a metered fare). STM Airport Express bus 747 offers 24-hour service between the airport and downtown Montreal. A single fare costs C$7 including unlimited use of the STM bus and metro network for the rest of the day. It stops at Lionel-Groux metro and a number of downtown stops.

Alternatively, public bus number 204 leaves from outside arrivals every half hour to Gare Dorval. From Dorval, you can use your transfer ticket to catch bus number 211 or express bus number 221 to the Lionel-Groulx metro. Your transfer will then allow you into the métro. This costs only C$2.75, but exact change must be provided to the first driver.
 
The Montreal region is also served by Burlington International Airport in South Burlington, Vermont. Burlington is served by JetBlue, USAirways, Delta Airlines, Continental Airlines and United Airlines, with direct, non-stop service to numerous U.S. cities including Orlando, Florida. Burlington International Airport is approximately 90 minutes drive from Montreal. In addition, Plattsburgh International Airport, in Plattsburgh, New York, is about one hour away by car. Domestic US flights to Burlington and Plattsburgh can be cheaper than international flights to Canada.

CME Accreditation
Please note that you have your CME Accreditation Form (EACCME) in your Congress Kit. In order to receive your accreditation points, please submit the completed form to the Registration Desk before the end of the Congress. Your certificate will be sent to you directly.

Certificates of credits issued by McGill University will be available at the registration desk starting May 27 at noon.
 
Visas
Prior to booking flights, registrants are strongly advised to confirm with their travel agent whether they require a Visa to travel to Montreal.
 
Currency
Montreal’s currency is the Canadian dollar, which is relatively stable. ATMs are located throughout Montreal. There will very likely be at least one fee for withdrawing money. Hotels, attractions and stores routinely take major credit and debit cards. You may also use your debit card at stores and receive cash back to avoid ATM charges.
Currency exchange calculations can be made at http://www.xe.com/ucc/

Tipping
A tip of 15% is customarily left for waiters and waitresses at the table, calculated on the pre-tax total of your bill. It will not be calculated for you. The additional charges on a restaurant bill are taxes, not service charges and are not voluntary. Taxi drivers usually receive a tip of 10-15% as do those who render personal services such as haircuts.

Congress Kit and Name Tag
The congress kit and your name tag will be given at the registration counter on the 3rd floor. Please wear your name tag during all sessions and social events.

Certificate of Attendance
Certificates of attendance will be available at the registration desk starting May 27 at noon.
