Be sure to book in advance, as June is the peak season for visits to Toronto!

You can easily access Toronto with direct flights to Toronto Pearson Airport (YYZ) or the city-based Billy Bishop Airport (YTZ). From major airlines to budget carriers, you'll find a route to get you into the heart of the celebration.
