(From the Metro Vancouver Convention and Visitor's Bureau)

 

 Travel Pre-Planning

  • Before your trip, make sure you have the right travel documents for entering Canada. You’ll need a valid passport, and in some cases, a visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization which you can apply for online. Please check entry requirements here.

  • You might also need to check out customs requirements, especially if you’re bringing equipment and materials into Canada for your meeting. More details on Canadian Border Services Agency restrictions can be found here.

  • Don’t forget that most US and international cell phone and data plans don’t automatically cover Canada. To avoid roaming charges, purchase a Canadian data roaming and calling plan from your provider, or plan on switching to wifi only and connecting with your friends and colleagues via email, What’s App or Facebook.

 Weather

  • Temperatures cool down in Vancouver over the fall months of September, October and November, and things get a little rainy as well. But overall, the climate is quite mild, with temperatures ranging from a sunny 18˚C (65˚F) on a sunny September day, through to a rainy 9˚C (48˚F) in later months. Check Vancouver’s current and historical weather conditions online here.

 What To Wear

  • Plan on dressing in light layers, and pack a rain jacket and an umbrella for wet days. If you’re thinking about heading up to the local mountains, make sure you bring a warmer layer as well as gloves, scarf and a hat. Bring some good walking shoes – Vancouver is a great place to explore on foot!

 Getting Around

  • You’ll most likely be flying into Vancouver International Airport, and you’ll find that the easiest way to get to downtown is by hopping on the Canada Line light-rail service – just look for the “Trains to the City” signs! The 30-minute trip is CAD $9, and tickets can be purchased by credit card on the platform. Alternatively, taxis are available and charge a flat fee from $31 - $35 for downtown zones.  

  • Once you’re downtown, walking is often the best option in our compact, very walkable city. Most hotels are within a 10-minute stroll of the Vancouver Convention Centre, and you can easily walk to many downtown attractions including those in Gastown, Stanley Park and Robson Street. Just ask your concierge for a map (and possibly an umbrella!)

  • Taxis are plentiful; you can ask your bell desk to call one for you, or hail one on the street. Or try a service like Ripe Rides for on-call luxury sedans.
