How To Get To The Symposium

Flying into YVR? The Canada Line is Vancouver’s new rapid transit rail link connecting YVR to downtown Vancouver in 26 minutes. It’s a fast and easy way to get to the city centre. You can conveniently access trains from both the International and Domestic Terminals.

  • Arriving from within Canada? If you’re picking up checked bags, you are at Arrivals, level 2 of the Domestic Terminal. Go to Level 3, and walk toward the Link Building (located in between the International and Domestic Terminal). Follow the signs marked Canada Line.
  • Arriving from the U.S.A. or an International Destination? Once through the customs and immigration arrivals process, walk toward the exit to the International Arrivals Greeting Area. Exit the building following signs marked Canada Line. Before the parkade entrance, an escalator and elevator will take you up to the Canada Line platform. 

Pay for your ticket, get on-board and take the train to the end of the line, “Waterfront Station”. To walk to the hotel, exit the station, turn right at Cordova Street and right again on Howe Street onto Canada Place Way. The Fairmont Waterfront is on your left hand side. Estimated walking time is 5 minutes.
