The 2016 OAIA Conference will be held at the:
Faculty Club of the University of Toronto
41 Willcocks Street
From the East via Don Valley Parkway – Follow the signs for the Bloor Street Viaduct which brings you out at Bloor Street about 3 Km from your destination. You will turn right (west) onto Bloor Street. Heading west along Bloor Street, turn left at the traffic lights at St. George Street and head south on St. George. It is probably easiest to continue down St. George to College, turn right on College and then right onto Spadina Ave. This will get you to the parking lot.
From the West via the QEW and Gardiner Expressway – Follow the downtown signs to the Spadina Ave. exit from the elevated Gardiner Expressway. Follow Spadina Ave. 3 kms north to Willcocks Street.
