Local Information and Travel:

IMPORTANT NOTE: All international travelers should check to see if you require an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)

WARNING: To avoid any issues with traveling, please ensure your travel agent arranges your flights to arrive at the proper destination by using our airport code YYT (St. John’s, NL, Canada).

Since July 1st is Canada’s 150th birthday and we are the first in Canada to celebrate, our capital city of St. John’s, NL will certainly be having a large celebration for it, so you might think about extending your stay for the celebration!

Things to Do in St. John's

Transportation/Car Rentals:

It is strongly recommended for any attendees interested in renting a car/vehicle during their stay to do so as far in advance and as soon as possible due to June being a very busy tourist season in St. John’s, NL.

St. John’s International Airport has six car rental companies on-site to cover all of your transportation needs.
For more information or alternate ground transportation, please see the St. John’s Airport Website.
