Travelling to Toronto puts you in the most populous and exciting city in Canada. If you’re travelling on business, you’ll want to get organized to ensure that you are prepared for all of the great things the city has to offer.

Check/Confirm You Reservations and Lodging for Business Trips

Make sure you’ve reserved executive-class lodging that meets your approval. Visit corporate housing web sites, invest time in scouring listings, and look into various options from executive rentals to short-term rentals.

You’ll want a fully-furnished unit or apartment that is available during the length of your stay, and that can offer to extend your stay if your business runs long.

Check out different locations within the city: If you’re staying in Toronto on business, find out exactly where within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) your business will mainly take place. Is it within the downtown core that houses the financial district, or in the suburbs of North York or Mississauga? If so, make sure you find accommodations with direct proximity to wherever you need to be, as well as key transportation networks like the TTC public transit and major highways.

Make a Packing List

Ensure that you arrive with just enough of the right items so you are dressed for success from the moment you arrive in Toronto. Have both proper business attire and some casual options for when you’re on your own time exploring the city.

Search for Food Options

Spice up your stay by having meals at the most popular local eateries. Toronto boasts many food options from fine dining to renowned nightly hot spots.

Also consider that because a furnished residence, unlike most hotel rooms, comes with a full-size kitchen, you also have the option of preparing your own healthy meals within your apartment.

Explore the City

There is so much to see and do within the city, from visiting the CN Tower to taking a walk through the Distillery District.

Understand Cultural Norms

Like any international destination, taking a moment to research local customs and traditions is important to your overall experience. Canadians are known as overly polite and reserved people compared to their U.S. neighbours. Business involves meritocracy whereby a person’s authority is always tied to their position and responsibility.

Smoking is prohibited in most public areas, all business is done by appointment or invitation, and dress, as well as language, is usually conservative.
