Getting There & Staying There

Halifax is served by Halifax Stanfield International Airport, with flights from across Canada and 1-hour direct from Boston and other northeast U. S. cities.

Thanks to Dalhousie University & Dr. Gordon Price for providing shuttle van service from the Airport to the Conference on Sunday, September 9th.

Public transportation services were also available (e.g. MetroX bus).

On Wednesday, September 12th, the Conference tour bus stopped at the airport on its way back to Halifax at 3:35 pm.
