When you arrive, take the elevator to the fifth floor. If the desk is temporarily empty there is a doorbell you can ring (or knock on a door). The receptionist should be available from 8:30 am.
Coffee is available each day. Breakfast and lunch are provided Thursday and Friday. Breakfast is provided Saturday; we can arrange a local delivery for lunch.
There will be a group dinner (not sponsored cost) Thursday evening at a local restaurant. Local friends in the web accessibility field will join us.

Most people will fly to Toronto Pearson International Airport. Upon arrival you can take a taxi, the Toronto Airport Express, or public transit airport service. On Saturday, we may arrange a shared transportation option back to the airport, since many people have flights departing around the same time.
Train users will go to Toronto Union Station. It is near the meeting location and public transit is available.
All times are in Eastern Standard Time (EST, UTC -5). Use the provided URIs to ascertain agenda items in your local, dialin time.
