FAQ and Contact

Frequently Asked Questions

Is travel funding available for conference participants?

Unfortunately the AGHS is unable to offer travel funding to participants. We encourage participants to seek funding from their home universities. We can provide a letter of invitation to support funding applications. Contact us at aghstoronto@gmail.com if you would like to request a formal invitation letter.

Where can I stay while visiting Toronto?

We recommend that visiting graduate students try Airbnb for the most affordable accommodation options close to the University of Toronto. Unfortunately the hotels nearby tend to be higher-end and out of the price range for most graduate students. Neighbourhoods close to the campus are the Annex, Yorkville, Chinatown, and Little Italy. Further information about the conference location is available here.

Do I need a visa to visit Canada?

Many visitors to Canada are required to apply for Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) in advance of their visit. This is the equivalent of the Visa Waiver ESTA program in the United States. Some visitors not eligible for ETA will require a visa to enter Canada. Visit the Government of Canada website for further information about immigration requirements. Unfortunately we are unable to offer advice of immigration matters.
