Banks

Tourists visiting Toronto are able to use their credit and debit cards at ATMs, which can be found almost everywhere, providing a convenient way to exchange currency. Most banks in Vancouver are open between Monday and Friday, although their opening hours are slightly shorter than regular shops and stores in Toronto. Some banks are open later or on weekends or Thursday evenings.


Climate

Summers in Toronto are sunny, warm and can be muggy, with temperatures lingering just above 24 Celsius (75 Fahrenheit), with approximately six days of rain in June.


Languages

The official language of the Annual Meeting will be English. We do not foresee simultaneous translation.


Liability

The Canadian Urological Association, its Organizing Committees and Professional Congress Organizer shall not be held liable for personal accidents or losses or damage to private property of registered participants of the 2017 Annual Meeting.


Sales Taxes

Ontario has a 13% HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) that combines PST (Provincial Sales Tax of 8%) and GST (Goods and Services Tax of 5%). This tax is applicable to most goods, purchased gifts, food/beverages and services in Ontario.

In addition of the HST, the Westin Harbour Castle Toronto will add a Destination Marketing Program fee (DMP) of 3%.


Tipping

Some hotels include tips or gratuities with group programs to simplify bookkeeping. This usually includes gratuities for housekeeping, bell service and food service. In a hotel, bell service should be tipped about $1 per bag, and housekeeping $1 to $5 dollars a day (in proportion to your room rate). Visitors should know that the standard tip in restaurants is 15%, with 20% for very outstanding service. Tip taxis about 10%, and a dollar a bag they carry for you (not just unload), or at the very least round fares up to the nearest dollar. Tipping is customary in bars, restaurants, salons/spa and taxis.
