Getting To Victoria

General Information

Victoria is on an island off the west coast of Canada. Airlines fly directly to Victoria from most Canadian centres, but American attendees may find better rates by flying with American carriers to Seattle and then connecting to Victoria. Vehicle and passenger ferries connect Victoria to Vancouver B.C. and to Seattle and Port Angeles, Washington. The university provides a set of UVic Tourism links to this sort of information.

Americans Require Passports

Please note that passports will be required for travel between the United States and Canada by June 2009. If you are an American and need a passport, see the U.S. Department of State passport site.
