Hotel and travel

The conference will be taking place at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel. The address is:

Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel
123 Queen Street West
Toronto, ON M5H 3M9

As the designated conference hotel, the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel has reserved a block of rooms for delegates. The special room rate for the conference is $189 plus taxes per night for a standard room or double room. The special rate is only available until 5 p.m. on Friday November 5 until the room block has been filled. You may still make a reservation after November 5 but room rates will vary and are subject to availability.

Please book your rooms in advance. If you are booking on behalf of a group, please ensure you assign a guest’s name to the room and only reserve the amount you need. Unlike in the past, the hotel will not be creating sub-blocks for colleges to hold rooms. Therefore, the colleges will have to book directly into the main block on a first-come-first-serve basis.

If you would like to make a hotel reservation, please call the reservations office by dialing 1-888-627-7175 and reference the Higher Education Summit or Colleges Ontario. You may also reserve online by going to Higher Education Summit 2021 (OR copy and paste the following link into a web browser)
